Pueblo Grande Museum to reopen after year shutdown due to COVID-19
PHOENIX — Pueblo Grande Museum will reopen Tuesday at 75% capacity after being closed for the past year due to COVID-19. The museum, an archaeological site once inhabited by the Hohokam people and located near Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, will offer a new exhibit as a part of the reopening.
The Rights and Resilience: Celebrating Native American Women exhibition was created by Kim Nishihara and is devoted to Native American women who fight for their people, place and heritage.
Rights and Resilience features ethnographic objects among artwork from a band of contemporary artists with a virtual program featuring indigenous women’s rights advocate Rosetta Walker.
The goal behind the exhibit is to inspire perspective through conversations and art from women who have experienced warfare, cultural assimilation or persecution.
The outdoor museum showcases the heritage of the people who lived in Phoenix long ago.
Tickets cost $6 for adults, $5 for those 55 and older, $3 for children ages 3-17, and free for museum members and children under 6. The museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
