Housed in a concrete faux-Mayan ziggurat just north of the landmark Grady Gammage Auditorium on the ASU campus, the museum is accessed down a flight of stairs that leads to a cool underground plaza area. Inside are ascending galleries for crafts, prints, contemporary art, and Latin American art, along with outdoor sculpture courts and a gift shop. The affiliated Ceramics Research Center, a vibrant gallery that showcases the university’s extensive collection of fine-art ceramics, is 2 blocks north at the Brickyard Center, 699 S. Mill Ave. Check the schedules for both for speakers, special events, and lively exhibition openings, a/k/a parties.
