A museum that tells an untold story. One that has never been told, not even by the world’s most famous museums. One that touches every person and culture... even life itself. One that is tied to the respective fortunes of both Arizona and Clarkdale; producing over 100 billion pounds of copper. One focused on what happened to all of Arizona’s copper, and its incredible journey that spanned the globe. One that makes perfect sense to this community and the Copper State.
Named “the single most impressive venue for contemporary art in Arizona” by Art in America magazine, ASU Art Museum, part of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, was founded in 1950 with a major gift of American and Latin American works.

Visitor comment: The museum is difficult to find, but it's worth the effort! There are almost no signs to guude you there; we got a map from the office at the Indian Oasis Intermediate School on Highway 86. On the west end of Sells, turn south, pass the hospital, turn right on the road to Topawa (Indian Highway 19), go almost 10 miles, then left on Fresnal Canyon Road.
