Arizona's Greatest Treasure
The Copper Art Museum is Arizona's newest art museum which is in perfect unity with the former company-town of Clarkdale, a City Beautiful Movement town founded in 1912. Clarkdale was built by Senator W. A. Clark â€œAmerica's Copper Kingâ€ for the mass-production of industrial copper from 1915 to 1953, which was exported throughout the world. The museum's collection is the â€œlargest return of copper,â€ â€œbackâ€ to both Clarkdale and the â€œCopper Stateâ€ and showcases what man created with the red-metal while it was away.
The Copper Art Museum features exhibits of copper art and collections for study, which were made by coppersmiths, soldier artists and braziers; many of whom were masters in their trade. Artifacts displayed have an emphasis on American and European works-of-art from the 16th - 21st century.
