Like a secular Noah, George L. Ellis hand-built his Ark, the Scottsdale artist colony known as the Cattle Track Arts Compound, on the banks of the Arizona Canal beginning in 1937. Though he didnt single-handedly found the Scottsdale arts scene, his numerous constructs housed many of the significant artists who did, including the great Philip Curtis. Learn more about the compound still extant and run by Ellis daughter Janie in the Cattle Track Arts Colony: Cowboys and Images exhibit.
