Palette Restaurant at Phoenix Art Museum Closing Sunday, May 28

PHOENIX (May 16, 2023) After more than a decade of partnership and dedicated service to every Museum visitor who has passed through our doors, Phoenix Art Museum announces that Palette Restaurant will close permanently to the public at the end of May. Their last day of service will be on PhxArt Family Funday on Sunday, May 28. The free-access event, celebrating the recent opening of special-engagement exhibition Juan Francisco Elso: Por América, features live performances, art making, demonstrations, special food and beverages, and experiences for visitors of all ages and abilities, and will be the final day to visit Palette before they close their doors.

PhxArt is currently working with a community partner to bring a new restaurant experience to our visitors, art lovers, and foodies of the Valley, which will open this fall. Details on the new establishment will be announced in the coming months.
