It’s common to see chartered party buses pull up to nightlife hot spots and deploy hollering bros and dolled-up divas. Scottsdale Public Art flips the script on Saturday, June 22, by gathering culture-minded passengers for IN FLUX Cycle 3 Multi-City Art Tour.
IN FLUX was founded in 2010, to connect local artists to local businesses and spaces to create temporary site-specific art installations. It’s grown to include Goodyear, Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa, and Chandler. Leading the air-conditioned journey to sights all across the Valley from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. are tour guides and Road Trip Bingo leaders Leslie Barton and Michael Weakley, a pair of performance polyglots. The lunch-break picnic includes an acoustic performance from rockers Rough Tough Dynamite. When the tour bus circles back to Scottsdale, adventurers will enjoy free admission to SMoCA.
The tour starts at 9 a.m. at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, 7373 East Second Street. The tour is all-ages. Tickets are $15 and include lunch. Visit www.influxaz.com for more info.
