This Saturday, December 14, Scottsdale Public Art will lead a free public art walk through Old Town.

From 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. pedestrians will enjoy a guided exploration of Artist Tad Savinar's Historical Happenstance, a series of markers along Scottsdale Road that illustrate its cultural history and evolution, as well as the multi-city project, platFORM, a temporary installment of public sculptures designed by ASU students.

Along the two-mile walk, guests will have a chance to meet and greet with some of the artists, such as Tad Savinar and ASU students, Elijah Bourque, Matthew Briggs, Ben Nunnery, and Muharrem Yildirim.

The Historical Happenstance and platFORM Walking Tour will kick off at the North East corner of Scottsdale Road and Roosevelt Street, with complimentary return transportation at the end. For more information, visit or check out the event on Facebook.
