Ten architecturally significant and art-filled residences will be on tour Feb. 24 through 26 as part of Contemporary Forum’s exclusive Art+Architecture Weekend, a fundraising event for the volunteer organization, which supports Phoenix Art Museum and promotes contemporary art through acquisitions, education and exhibitions.

“We are excited that Contemporary Forum is reaching out to the architecture community through this event, as architecture and art go hand in hand,” says Phoenix Art Museum’s chief curator, Gilbert Vicario. “Contemporary Forum is on the forefront of contemporary art collecting, so this is a perfect blending of the two areas.” Here are just some of the homes that will be on the tour. Tickets from $100

Villa Paradisa
Stone Court Villa is the name given to a Paradise Valley residence designed by Los Angeles-based architect Marwan Al-Sayed, formerly of Phoenix. The home features walls of pale stacked Mexican stone that wrap around a dramatic black granite-clad infinity pool and help focus views on mountains and desert near the 9-acre site. Inside, the interiors are warmed by wood flooring and transitional furnishings. The owners worked with art consultant John Runyon to choose pieces by Sol LeWitt, Arturo Herrera, Anthony Pearson and others.
