Whether you choose to relax with a dip in the pool, a sip of a cocktail, or a trip to the museum, there's plenty to keep you cool in Phoenix. We've rounded up the best ways to beat the heat this weekend:
Daily through September 30
Los Angeles-based artist Rafik Anadol blurs the lines between the physical and the virtual in his Infinity Room at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. What first appears to be a typical 12 x12 room quickly transforms into a three dimensional abyss with immersive light, sound, and technology. This thought-provoking display will have you questioning you perception and challenge your awareness of your physical self.
