Spring Fling

According to legendary rodent Punxsutawney Phil, we’ve got another month of winter ahead.

Screw that. This is Phoenix, the land of the blazing sun.

We’re breaking into spring early with pool parties, outdoor festivals, and Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art’s Spring Opening Celebration. The event features gallery talks with the curators of the “Rewind Remix Replay” and Chuck Close print exhibitions, plus a visit from a nine-year-old boy whose work is featured in the “Healing Expressions” display at the neighboring Scottsdale Center for Performing Arts. You can also catch Elektrobahn, a musical project featuring Scott McKenzie and Dayvid LeMmon creating a wall of sound using huge speakers and vintage analog synthesizers, all while chatting up SMoCA’s new director Timothy Rodgers . . . ideally before indulging in the cash bar.
