Arts & Museums
A designated National Historic Landmark since 1987, the Painted Desert Inn is a restored Pueblo Revival lodge that was built between 1937-1940. It was neglected after its closure in 1963 however was saved from demolition after public protests. It was finally opened to the public in 2006 as a museum and bookstore. The murals by Hopi Indian artist Fred Kabotie are a lovely sight on its walls. They were painted in a period of one year (1947-1948). The intricate hand-painted glass panels and punched tin chandeliers by the Civilian Conservation Corps who labored for three years to build this historic lodge bears testimony to their skill-work.
