Scottsdale Public Art’s Canal Convergence is 10 consecutive days of engagingexperiences that celebrate water, art and light along Scottsdale’s historic waterfront. This free event features 10 large-scale art installations, live music and more.
Canal Convergence seeks to challenge artists to find our collective common ground through public art. For Canal Convergence 2020, we endeavor to address themes of inclusion, communication, collaboration, and community engagement alongside our perennial focus on Water + Art + Light, sustainability, and water conservation.
Given the impact and conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be presented differently than in years past with a focus on the health and safety of the public. Canal Convergence will still feature large-scale art installations, but instead of featuring them all along the canal at the Scottsdale Waterfront, they will be installed at multiple locations throughout Scottsdale to increase social distancing-friendly viewing options.
