Members and guests of the Rotary Club of Scottsdale recently heard about Western Spirit — Scottsdale’s Museum of the West’s extraordinary exhibitions of world-class art, historic artifacts, compelling western stories, exciting events and more.
The museum’s director, Mike Fox, told attendees that the new Scottsdale facility is not a museum of objects — but a museum of ideas.
The museum, 7610 E. McDonald Drive, serves as the western anchor to Scottsdale’s arts and cultural district, linking several vibrant residential, commercial and entertainment neighborhoods in Old Town Scottsdale.
It energizes the historic Loloma Arts District and enhances pedestrians’ enjoyment of the respected gallery community on nearby Main Street. Attendees left the meeting excited to experience the museum’s essence of the American West, past and present.
