Still got that MiniDisc player in a drawer somewhere? Now's your chance to see what if it's art, as the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (best known by it's delightful acronym SMoCA) is holding a second call for entries in its future exhibition, Rewind Remix Replay: Design, Music and Everyday Experience.

All objects will be reviewed by SMoCA's curatorial staff and Prasad Boradkar, Associate Professor, Industrial Design at Arizona State University and guest curator of the exhibition. The exhibition will be on view at SMoCA from December 19, 2009 to May 23, 2010. SMoCA's Senior Curator Claire Schneider wants visitors to think back to the time when they first fell in love with music and to ask themselves: How did you play your first album, or was it a tape, a CD or an MP3 file? What instruments have you used to make music? Has that changed over the years? Chances are, some of the musical equipment that we all may have stowed away, that might even be an obsolete item by now, could be the perfect addition to the SMoCA exhibition!

The open-call evaluations are Saturday, August 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. More info here.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
