On Friday, June 8, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art will be a cool place to see and be seen. The museum will host its annual Summer Opening Celebration, marking the beginning of the season and offering local art lovers a chance to check out the museum's newest exhibitions, as well as musical performances and behind-the-scenes tours with museum curators.
On the walls, floors, and pedestals of SmoCA this summer are the latest video works from Santa Fe-based multimedia artist Peter Sarkisian, collaborative work by composer Judd Greenstein and design group New Catalogue, sculpture from the museum’s permanent collection, and a new showcase of work by young local artists in the museum’s young@art gallery.
The free event takes place at 7 p.m. and features performances from Dulce Dance Company in the Lounge and a live preview of Greensetin’s concert première, the following evening.
