SMoCA and Mirrors

If First Friday is Phoenix’s art/fashion/music love child, then SMoCA Nights is the older brother who aced law school at Harvard and married a B-list celebrity. While Birkenstocks and dreadlocks define the dress code on Roosevelt, the Scottsdale art scene is strictly dress to impress. The Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art kicks off another season of SMoCA Nights -- its thrice-annual schmoozefest featuring fashion shows, live music, and art exhibitions -- with “Caravan.” Presented by Phoenix’s Passage boutique, the event includes a runway show of avant-garde creations from local and internationally known designers. You can also cruise the SMoCA galleries and experience the visceral output of L.A.’s audio/visual collective Museum of Traffic or stroll through the outdoor bazaar while Bisbee’s Nowhere Man and A Whiskey Girl performs folky, moonshine-inspired tunes.
