Strategic Plan

Frequently Asked Questions...

Welcome to West Valley Art Museum website!

Even though the Museum closed in September, 2009, and lost its building in December of that same year, the Museum is still a viable 501C3 non-profit institution, dedicated to preserving its collection of Ethnic Dress, Fine Art Prints and Arizona Art.

With no paid staff, the Board of Trustees meets every month to plan and strategize for the Museum’s future.   Exhibitions have begun at the Peoria City Hall Art Gallery and will continue into the future with more programming, i.e., classes, Appraisal Days, lectures, demonstrations and concerts.

Watch this website for announcements of upcoming shows and see the Map to Peoria City Hall Gallery for the Art Gallery location.

This will be a very slow process but progress is continuous. Volunteers are needed for all aspects of the Museum’s return to full activity. The current address for the Museum is: P.O. Box 6377, Peoria, AZ 85385 for all memberships, donations and correspondence.

An office for conducting the business of the Museum is currently at another cultural institution in Peoria with the same phone number as before; 623-972-0635.

Connection to email is still at info@wvam.org. Watch for announcements regarding meetings of the membership and fund-raising events in the local media, through email and on this website.

Our Bricks!


The Memorial Bricks

To all who have been concerned about what was happening with the bricks in the Café patio, we’re happy to tell you that they have been taken up from the patio and have been taken to a safe location to keep until such time as they can be re-installed in a public place to once again re-affirm memories of loved ones and contributors to the Museum.
