Phippen Museum Presents Docents Select

January 29th – June 18th, 2017

 

The Phippen Museum’s outstanding volunteer docents spend a good deal of their time as tour guides, helping both adults and children understand the themes and artistic techniques associated with the museum’s ongoing exhibits. But, from time to time, their special skills are also utilized to help curate museum exhibits by suggesting a specific artist or artwork for display that, for one reason or another, has captivated their imagination or piqued their interest.

So from January 29th through June 18th, the Phippen Museum invites you to come experience some of their docent’s favorite pieces in the exhibition, Docents Select. Created from pieces acquired since the museum’s founding in 1984, this exhibit demonstrates the broad variety of artwork in the Phippen’s Permanent Collection, the docents keen sense of wonder and the historical significance of this community's thoughtful generosity.

But with the opening of any exhibit comes the closing of another. And after three months on display, National Parks: 100 Years will come down this Sunday, January 22nd. Commemorating the 100th anniversary of America's National Parks, this exhibition features a specially-selected collection of stunning, juried photographs from local camera club members. But if you’d like to see these spectacular images from some of the nation's most popular landscapes of the west, you’ll need to hurry.

The Phippen Museum is the foremost repository for western artwork in this area, housing hundreds of outstanding pieces that illustrate more than a century’s worth of ranching history. The museum is located only a few minutes north of downtown Prescott at 4701 Highway 89 North. For additional information on these or any other events at the museum, please call (928)778-1385, or visit their website at www.phippenartmuseum.org. And if you have a special interest or background in art or western history and heritage, the museum is always looking for enthusiastic volunteers and docents who would like to share their time and expertise.

 

Equipment Awarded to Prescott Valley Area First Responders

 

PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. – Continuing its mission of supporting hometown heroes, Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation will celebrate $41,938 worth of life-saving equipment grants awarded to Groom Creek Fire District, Mayer Fire District and Copper Canyon Fire and Medical Authority during a press event at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at the local Firehouse Subs restaurant located at 3088 Glassford Hill Road, Prescott Valley, Ariz. 86314.

            The event will incorporate a donation ceremony, as well as live demonstrations from receiving departments, explaining the importance of the equipment and how it will be used to save lives. Residents and Firehouse Subs guests are invited to join the celebration and see firsthand how their generous contributions have come full circle to provide much needed equipment in their community.

 “While we think first responders have the tools they need to save lives, the truth is that many times they are using older technology and even outdated equipment,” said Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation Executive Director Robin Peters. “We want to be sure they have the best tools and training to protect and save lives.”

The below encapsulates each grant award being celebrated at the March 28 event, including a brief description of equipment use and value:

  • Groom Creek Fire District received a self-contained breathing apparatus fill station and compressor worth $25,362. The awarded equipment will replace an outdated system, allowing the department to conduct training exercises with breathable air when air quality is poor, enhancing firefighter safety and reducing recovery time.
  • Mayer Fire District received four sets of personal protective gear worth $12,626. The awarded gear, which includes helmets, coats, pants, boots, gloves and hoods, will provide necessary protection in the line of duty, allowing firefighters to provide safe and efficient services to their community.
  • Copper Canyon Fire and Medical Authority received a skid unit worth $3,950. Since the department serves a large rural area, the awarded skid unit will be placed on an all-terrain vehicle (ATV), allowing firefighters to provide medical assistance and fire suppression in areas impassable by traditional emergency vehicles.

“We are so grateful for our servicemen and women,” said Paul Jordan, area sales manager. “This event allows us to give back and interact with those men and women who have given so much in order to defend our country.”

The event will take place April 29 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Yavapai College in Prescott and Pioneer Title Agency will display its own vehicle.
