The Copper Art Museum is Arizona's newest art museum which is in perfect unity with the former company-town of Clarkdale, a City Beautiful Movement town founded in 1912. Clarkdale was built by Senator W. A. Clark “America’s Copper King” for the mass-production of industrial copper from 1915 to 1953, which was exported throughout the world. The museum’s collection is the “largest return of copper,” “back” to both Clarkdale and the “Copper State” and showcases what man created with the red-metal while it was away.

The Copper Art Museum features exhibits of copper art and collections for study, which were made by coppersmiths, soldier artists and braziers; many of whom were masters in their trade. Artifacts displayed have an emphasis on American and European works-of-art from the 16th - 21st century. The affinities and history of copper is also featured and is very fascinating, bringing forth forgotten stories, legends and mysteries.

  • Don't pass up this gem. The museum is very well done. Their collection of copper items was first class. The self guided tour was well laid out, information about each section was plentiful. We were very happy that we stopped. Well worth it.
  • If the history of the use of copper would interest you this a great place to spend an hour+. The metallurgy and the many uses of copper are well represented. See the copper "Conversational" bathtub.
