Public Art Sculptures to be Moved from Civic Center Area Beginning September 1 in Preparation for Civic Center Renovation

Public Art Sculptures to be Moved from Civic Center Area Beginning September 1 in Preparation for Civic Center Renovation

Construction work is anticipated to begin in October on a $27.3 million renovation of Scottsdale Civic Center, which was approved by voters in the 2019 Bond Election. In advance of construction, Scottsdale Public Art will begin moving 10 sculptures from Scottsdale Civic Center on Sept. 1. Some works will be permanently moved to different city-owned locations while others will be stored at secure city facilities until they can be re-installed at the Civic Center following the renovations, which will add new performance spaces, among other features. Additionally, two of the pieces will undergo restoration work before they are returned to the Civic Center. For additional details on the affected artworks please visit Scottsdale Public Art. To learn more about the overall project and view plans please visit the project website.
