Sedona Arts and Culture

Sedona’s art, heritage and culture experiences span history from archaeological discoveries of petroglyphs and dwellings created by the ancient Yavapai Native Americans, to the 19th and 20th centuries. Tour Sedona with a historical eye on exhibits and art galleries highlighting Sedona’s first pioneer settlers to the golden days of Hollywood. Finally, you can’t miss current masterworks of Sedona art and photography, food and wine. You may even be inspired to create some Sedona art of your own, so bring your camera, paints or sketchbook to take part of Sedona home with you.

Sedona Arts Center The Sedona Arts Center is not only a gathering place where artists and those who love art can explore, teach and exhibit, but it has grown into an organization with national presence, providing outstanding education programming and nationally recognized events. The Sedona Arts Center offers a full palette of artistic experiences for all ages.

Sedona Historical Society and Heritage Museum The Sedona Heritage Museum is focused on the lifestyles and works of the people who pioneered the Sedona community, from 1870 to the present. The Sedona Historical Society’s mission is to research, preserve and teach the history of the greater Sedona area.

Sedona Art Galleries & Artists Studios The Sedona Visual Artists Coalition provides a venue to showcase local artists here in Sedona.

Sedona Wineries If you’re surprised that Sedona is a wine growing region, don’t be. Sedona boasts warm sunny days and cool nights, ideal conditions for growing wine grapes. Arizona’s wine grapes are grown in a wonderful rich red soil. In fact, climate and soil studies show that this region is similar to those in Spain, Southeastern Australia, Southern France and California. Check out Echo Canyon Vineyards, Javelina Leap Vineyards, and Page Springs Vineyards and Cellars in Page Springs/Cornville. Call ahead or find them here on Sedona.net under Food & Drink » Wine Country to find out about the tasting rooms' hours of operation.

Plan a half-day trip to Jerome A once near-ghost-town with a rich copper mining history, today Jerome is very much alive with writers, artists, artisans, musicians, historians, and families. They form a peaceful, colorful, thriving community built on a rich foundation of history and lore.

Grab a photo-op Take a photography driving and hiking trip. Location suggestions include Oak Creek Canyon (be sure to check out the West Fork area), Red Rock Crossing, Crescent Moon State Park, Brins Mesa, Doe Mountain, Airport Mesa, and Broken Arrow Trail (specifically “Chicken Point” and “Submarine Rock”). Also try Long Canyon Trail and nearby Devil’s Bridge Trail.

Historical Sites You can't experience the culture of Sedona without delving into the past and exploring the ancient people that settled this mystical valley. Visit Montezuma Castle in Camp Verde, just 20 minutes from the Village of Oak Creek at the south end of Sedona. This national monument is one of the best preserved ancient cliff dwellings on the continent, a Sinaguan marvel dating back approximately 1,000 years.

To see cliff dwellings of the Hopi people, visit Palatki and its sister site, Honanki, just outside of West Sedona toward Cottonwood. These heritage sites, managed by the US Forest Service, can be toured by advance reservation under the guidance and education of a park ranger. The sites are open 7 days a week, excluding major holidays. If you're visiting Sedona on the weekend, check out V-Bar-V Ranch, another Sinaguan rock art site that is easily accessible near the Village of Oak Creek.
