For the first time in 30 years, the Amerind will open all of its fine art galleries to the public. The opening will feature the new exhibit Artistic Visions of the West. The exhibition will combine artworks from the Amerind's permanent collection with the private collection of Friends of Western Art, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the awareness of art of the American West in Tucson and southern Arizona. Highlights of the exhibit include works by Frederic Remington, William R. Leigh, Olaf Wieghorst and Ross Stefan.

Native artists like Allan Houser, Fred Kabotie, and Rosemary Lonewolf will appear with older works, such as a century-old painted elk hide believed to be made by the Shoshone artist Katsikodi.

The facility has new ramps and a wheelchair lift that will make the art gallery fully handicapped accessible.
