Scottsdale Museum Of Contemporary Art (SMoCA) displays a large variety of frequently changing contemporary art exhibits and special events for adults and families. Photographs, paintings and sculpture are just some of the museum’s offerings.
It also features an outdoor sculpture garden housing James Turrell’s Knight Rise, one of the renowned artist’s few public skyspaces, and Scrim Wall, a monumental curtain of prismatic glass by James Carpenter Design Associates.
Through October 1st, the museum features an exhibit celebrating its tenth anniversary. This exhibit may not be on display any more, as the website wasn’t very clear on when and where to view this.
Also displayed is art created by participating high school students who were involved in SMoCA’s Visions program. It’s great for teens to have a program to participate in that allows them to express their creativity through art as well as something to do if their parents aren’t home.
Admission to the museum is free on Thursdays. There are other art opportunities in Scottsdale if contemporary art isn’t your thing. You can visit www.scottsdalearts.org for links to sites such as the Scottsdale Performing Arts Center ~ the schedule for 2009-2010 is available, with information on upcoming events and tickets.
Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art is located at 7374 East Second Street in Scottsdale. For more information: visit: www.smoca.org
