Experience 10 days of wonder along the Scottsdale Waterfront at the Scottsdale Canal Convergence November 8th-17th, 2019. Enjoy the annual confluence of water + art + light. “The Story of Water” is an immersive interaction of art and artists. The free art festival will feature 14 large-scale, light-based installations by innovative local, national and international artists. The art exhibits are best viewed after sundown, but workshops and artist talks begin as early as 4pm. There will also be live music in the beer and wine garden at the Soleri Plaza.
Squidsoup is returning to Scottsdale for the Canal Convergence with two new installations, one at the Scottsdale Waterfront and one at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA). The “Standing Wave” artwork installation will use 600 interconnected orbs of light and sound to simulate a wave over the Arizona Canal at the Scottsdale Waterfront. The orbs will act in choreographed harmony to create a series of emotive and enticing environments, referencing standing waveforms in canyons and canals. “Murmuration,” a site-specific artwork at the SMoCA, will use a networked data system to connect hundreds of lights and audio sources, creating a responsive data swarm.
The Scottsdale Waterfront runs from Goldwater Boulevard and Fifth Avenue in the west to Camelback and Scottsdale roads in the east. Public parking is available nearby, including free options at Scottsdale Fashion Square.
