Museum Summer Hours: 9AM to 4PM • Open all days

Art of the Holidays

The Art of the Holidays is our first children’s art contest at the Superstition Mountain Museum. It will be held Saturday, December 16, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on the patio of the Museum and Gift Shop.

Students from the Apache Junction School District are being invited to participate by the District’s Art Teachers. There are 3 levels: 1st – 5th grades, 6th – 8th grades, and 9th – 12th grades.

Young artists are being asked to include some part of the Museum in their paintings, along with their concept of a holiday theme.

The finished paintings will be on display all day. Visitors can view them and then vote for their favorite paintings by purchasing tickets the day of the event and placing them in the container by their favorite artworks. Votes will be tallied from 4:00-5:00 p.m. and at 5:00 p.m., the first and second place winners in each category will be announced in our amphitheater. There will be cash prizes in each category!

As is the annual tradition, the Museum grounds will be decked out for the Holidays. Come on out and support our budding local DeGrazias and O’Keeffes and enjoy a fun day at the Museum.
