There’s a new hotel in town, and it’s for the birds. Well, sort of. It’s an art installation by Koryn Woodward Wasson, created for Scottsdale Public Art. “Bird Cloud Island” opens on Thursday, May 11, at Scottsdale Civic Center Library, 3829 North Drinkwater Boulevard. Wasson and her husband, fellow artist Roy Wasson Valle, created the impressive “Camp Dreamtree” installation in the same space back in 2014.
Leave your nest that night to explore Wasson’s bird-infused world between 5 and 7:30 p.m., when she’ll be leading tours of the Midcentury Modern hotel’s many bird-friendly amenities — including Early’s Diner, Jewel Pool, and the Good-Night Show at the Luna Club.
The show’s grand opening is free and open to all ages. Go ahead and make your own bird mask or concierge cap while you’re there. We won’t judge.
“Bird Cloud Island” continues through Thursday, August 31. Watch for related workshops during the show’s run.
