With the nice weather change, public art installations are popping up all around the world even right here in Scottsdale, AZ.Â The 2020 Canal Convergence is huge public art installation that runs through Scottsdale and is free to view!
This particular year artists have included augmented reality technology with their work so viewers can interact while following the CDC rules.
“We’re doing this, but we want folks to stay safe,” said Kim Boganey, director of Scottsdale Public Art to AZ Central. “The artworks will not be physically interactive this year because of safety concerns, but what’s new this year is an augmented reality presence.”
Some of the art pieces will be along the waterfront while others are placed in Old Town Scottsdale.
Included in the installations is giant inflatable light sculptures where flowers wrap around real trees and a luminous installation of 20 suspended LED frames that stretch across 40 feet.
When does Canal Convergence begin and end?
This installation only runs for 10 days between November 6-15.
Everything is free! Tickets only need to be paid for virtual workshops and have to be purchased in advance on https://canalconvergence.com.
