Experience a Legend at the Phoenix Art Museum

(…and join us for dinner afterwards!)


Arrangements are set and members are in for a treat!  Join us on Sunday, February 9th for a tour of fast-rolling history followed by a culinary treat.

The Phoenix Art Museum is featuring a very special showing of exceptional Racing Cars – the first major exhibition of race cars ever shown at the Museum.  Legends of Speed showcases an outstanding selection of Mercedes-Benz, Maserati, Ferrari, Ford, Bugatti cars and more, all on loan from internationally recognized collections and automotive museums, The display brings together in the Valley of the Sun, 22 of history’s most successful race cars.  Featured cars are winners of the world’s most celebrated races including Le Mans, the Indianapolis 500, the Mille Miglia, Targo Florio and others. This is an exhibit NOT to be missed.

We’ll meet at 2:30 pm on Sunday afternoon February 9th, at the Museum located at Central Avenue and McDowell in downtown Phoenix.  Plan to tour this limited-time exhibition with personal, knowledgeable docents, and learn exciting details and history of these one-of-a-kind motorcars and their drivers. We’ll also have time following our private tour, to peruse the collection on our own and shop in the Museum Store for memorabilia specially selected and designed for this event. 

Keeping with a classic Italian motoring theme, we’ll drive right to dinner at Tutti Santi, a cozy central-Phoenix trattoria for a dinner of Italian specialties just like the drivers of the Mille Miglia might have enjoyed.  And we guarantee there will be some special surprises…

 A discounted entrance fee and docents have been arranged with the Museum, and dinner details are sure to make for a great evening.  The all-in price of $65 per person includes the museum entry fee, the guided tour and a fabulous dinner!  You may be entitled to an additional discount if you’re already a member of the Phoenix Art Museum. 

Don’t miss this extraordinary exhibition of some of history’s most important racecars!  Sign up now to join the Desert Stars for a guided museum tour followed by Sunday Dinner.  See you there!
