Temporary Canal Installation by Poetic Kinetics

Canal Installations

The Scottsdale Waterfront is one of our most exciting locations for temporary projects. Innovative and engaging installations are now on display in the canal channel and along it's banks at the Waterfront not only during our annual Canal Convergence events, but throughout the year!

Scottsdale Arts Festival

Recognized for its high-quality fine arts since 1971, the Scottsdale Arts Festival showcases nearly 200 jury-selected artists from throughout the United States and Canada who work in painting, sculpture, glass and ceramics, jewelry, photography and more.

Belle Art

Belle Art provides an opportunity for artists to alter and enhance the Bell Tower, a key entry point to the Scottsdale Civic Center Mall. The installations, each up for a few months, provide a new approach to this public space, creating unexpected experiences, reasons to linger and return.


A multi-city initiative offering opportunities for Arizona university student artists to propose sculptures for temporary placement in public places.
