If contemporary art is just what you’re craving this summer look no further then the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA). With SMoCA’s summer line-up you will gain access to architecture manifested into exhibit art, provocative comic fandom experiences, and art produced by local Arizona high school students.
Of the three exciting exhibits that will be on display, the visit from Seattle duo, Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo, of Lead Pencil Studio will perhaps be the most uniquely thrilling. The appropriately titled, Art + Architecture, exhibit will be a one of a kind display of structural typologies and visually stimulating three-dimensional art. The team will be creating an installation responding specifically to the gallery space. If their past works are any indication of what may be found inside SMoCA’s gallery walls, you can expect anything ranging from a monstrous jungle gym, brightly displayed interactive spaces, or mind boggling structural fantasies made possible. Sound interesting? Well start your countdown clocks, this one time exhibit will be up for view starting June 25th, 2011- October 16, 2011. »READ MORE
