Brief Description

Scottsdale Public Art is seeking new commissions and/or previously completed light-based artworks to be installed in both indoor and outdoor locations at local businesses in Old Town Scottsdale. We are only seeking qualifications at this time. Local Light is a temporary public art initiative linking Canal Convergence at the Scottsdale Waterfront to the businesses in Old Town Scottsdale. Scottsdale Public Art presents Local Light as an extension of Canal Convergence with special activities and events featuring installations by Arizona-based artists. The Local Light initiative is a means to expand the footprint of Canal Convergence and support Scottsdale Contemporary Month (October – November 2019)—a series of arts and culture-focused events and programming in Old Town Scottsdale. The installations will draw attention and interest for the local businesses and light up storefronts, awnings, walkways, and public spaces throughout downtown every night of the exhibition period.
