Scottsdale


Arizona

Art Seen

With great foresight, the City of Scottsdale has made an incredible investment in public art, making it a dynamic part of the cityscape. The result is a masterpiece of urban aesthetics including distinctly Southwestern motifs that accent freeway walls. Today, magnificent sculptures, murals and other works of art are found throughout Scottsdale, beautifying the city, thanks to the combined efforts of the municipality and the private sector.

In addition to public art, area resorts are also a wonderful venue to enjoy Scottsdale's art. Resorts incorporate such fine collections on their properties in order to give their guests a more complete experience, a sense of discovery, and education about the many cultures of the region. At the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort at Gainey Ranch, an international selection of art throughout the hotel and an expansive sculpture garden await guests and visitors. The signature pieces here include the 20-foot high glass and limestone “Stonelith Chorus” by Damian Priour, and evoking the imagery of the Southwest, “Cliff Dweller,” rendered in paper mache over cedar wood by Clyde Connell. The resort's Native American Learning Center also features tribal art, textiles and jewelry. Other resorts noted for their collections include the Doubletree Paradise Valley Resort with various offerings, including the kinetic “Galloping Horses,” and The Phoenician, which showcases museum-quality fine art and antiques from Asia, Europe and the Americas.
