Scottsdale Museum Of Contemporary Art

Founded in 1999, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art [SMoCA] is the only museum in Arizona (USA)devoted to the art, architecture and design of our time. Global in its focus, the Museum is a unique and vital cultural resource for the Southwest, serving local audiences as well as visitors from throughout the United States and abroad. Designed by award-winning architect Will Bruder, SMoCA’s minimalist building (an ingenious renovation of a former movie theater) has five galleries for showcasing changing exhibitions and works from the Museum’s growing permanent collection. SMoCA 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. The Museum presents a wide variety of educational programs and special events for adults and families, including lectures, docent-led tours, workshops and classes. The Museum Store @ SMoCA offers classic design objects and furnishings, contemporary jewelry, art and architecture books and imaginative gifts for all occ... [ Read all ]

Artists Represented

SMoCA presents six-twelve exhibitions a year, depending on scale. We rotate exhibitions during the time periods of late August/early October; mid December/ early February and late April/early June. We have ca. three consolidated opening receptions annually, usually in October, in late January/early February and in late May/early June.

We present a balance of more historical exhibitions and cutting-edge contemporary art, of known names and exciting emerging artists on the cusp of today’s new ideas. Projects are often organized thematically to provide accessible points of entry to unfamiliar territory for the general public. The exhibition program includes ca. two installments annually in our ongoing exhibition series “southwestNET,” which highlights work by artists, architects and designers working in the U.S. southwestern region and seeks to build regional interaction and dialog. We also rotate into the schedule exhibitions of works in the permanent collection, approximately every twelve-eighteen months.
