In a time where abbreviations are in vogue and children have to explain acronyms to their parents, its hard to take shortened phrases seriously. At the first utter of an L followed by an O our faces twist into a cringe. But then there are those acronyms that make a name that much more important; think NASA, HBO, and BYOB.
Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art is one of those important places that deserves a cool abbreviation. On Friday, October 28, the SMoCA celebrates its fall season kickoff with four new exhibits and the opening of its SMoCA Lounge. Enjoy a breakdancing/painting performance by Joseph 'Sentrock' Perez and handmade ice cream samples from Rudy Speerschneider. Top it off with a glass of wine at the elegantly designed bar and lounge.
