Step by step, the Sedona Art Museum is closing in on being a reality. Kathy Hogan, a graphic design artist, fills out a form at Sedona Public Library for the Sedona Art Museum. The museum is gathering information from Verde Valley artists that will help form the mission statement for the potential 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

John Warren Oakes, president of the museum and an artist himself, has created a database that he hopes will provide a complete database for Verde Valley visual artists.

“It will be a valuable resource, not just for the museum but for all of Sedona,” Oakes said.

Artists interested in signing up can go to the Sedona Art Museum website and use the Verde Valley Visual Artists Directory to open the form. The form is also available in

Several libraries, as well as the city of Sedona, are helping to get the word out. Folders of forms are available at the Sedona Public Library, Jerome Library and the Camp Verde Community Library. Clarkdale Memorial Library and Cottonwood Public Library will provide help for people submitting online. Sedona Arts and Culture Coordinator Nancy Lattanzi will have forms available at her office in City Hall as well.

The Sedona Area Guild of Artists and Sedona Visual Artists’ Coalition, as well as other art groups, are also organizations Oakes said he wants to have provide forms.
