  • Scottsdale Cultural Council
    Nestled within 18,500 square feet and designed by award-winning architect Will Bruder, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art's quintet of galleries—formerly a cineplex's five theaters—have hosted changing and permanent exhibitions of art, architecture, and design since 1999. The outdoor sculpture garden features acclaimed pieces such as James Turrell's experiential Knight Rise skyspace and James Carpenter Design Associates' Scrim Wall. After viewing the art outside, visitors can return indoors to explore furnishings and jewelry in the shop or examine work by local youth in the young@art gallery. The museum's Visions Teen Program continues to nurture burgeoning talent, pairing teenagers with visual-art teachers and visiting artists. Adults can also enrich their artistic know-how at lectures and workshops until they are able to draw a perfect circle with a pencil still tucked behind their ear. The museum's lounge fosters artistic communities through events ranging from screenings of international art movies to art-making sessions.

  • Scottsdale's Celebration of Fine Art
    Scottsdale's Celebration of Fine Art showcases the work of 100 artists working in a variety of media. Each ticket permits unlimited admission over the 10-week period, which began on January 15 and lasts until March 27. Browse the 40,000-square-foot space and observe piece-crafters at work, freely chatting with them about their process or the career trajectories of painting elephants. Stroll inside the white tents and explore works rendered from oil paint, ceramics, stone, glass, and neo-classical gelatin molds. The outdoor sculpture court displays more than 100 structures for the perusal of decorators, architects, and other bronze aficionados. The show's jury appraises the quality of the artwork using standards tailored to each specific medium, so jewelers never suffer generic criticism like "derivative of Franz Schubert" or "too much paprika." An on-site cafe offers sandwiches and snacks artfully dubbed after O'Keefe, Picasso, and more, ensuring taste buds feast as thoroughly as eyes.
