Were breaking into spring early with pool parties, outdoor festivals, and Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Arts Spring Opening Celebration. The event features gallery talks with the curators of the Rewind Remix Replay and Chuck Close print exhibitions, plus a visit from a nine-year-old boy whose work is featured in the Healing Expressions display at the neighboring Scottsdale Center for Performing Arts.
