Since opening in 1975, the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts has housed hundred of performances, festivals and other events. Guests are welcomed into the Dayton Fowler Grafman Atrium where they can enjoy Kana Tanaka’s glass sculpture, Spirit of Camelback. Performances are held in the Virginia G. Piper Theater, an 850-seat auditorium, or the 137-seat Stage 2 Theater. The complex also includes a 1,800-seat outdoor amphitheater on the Scottsdale Civic Center Mall. The civic plaza is a 21-acre urban park that's just a short walk from the heart of Old Town Scottsdale. It's where you'll find Robert Indiana’s iconic LOVE and Louise Nevelson’s Windows to the West sculptures. The Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and Scottsdale Public Art are all managed by the nonprofit Scottsdale Cultural Council. Parking can be found in the nearby garage next to the civic plaza and is free.
