We are thrilled to welcome you to our 2016–17 season and to share
with you very exciting news! After serving the community for three decades as the Scottsdale Cultural Council, our organization has officially adopted Scottsdale Arts as its new name.
A great deal of careful thought and planning has gone into this change, and we know the time is right to introduce a new identity that reflects our organization’s creativity, vitality and synergy. Scottsdale Arts is bold and direct, and perfectly represents the fundamental mission of our organization – to provide our city’s residents and visitors with exceptional arts and educational experiences – now and well into the future.
Our new season guide includes an extraordinary variety of programs and events presented by all three Scottsdale Arts divisions – Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA) and Scottsdale Public Art. You may also easily access information about our offerings from one convenient website: ScottsdaleArts.org.
We are grateful for the opportunity to serve the City of Scottsdale and for the generous support of Mayor Jim Lane and the Scottsdale City Council, as well as our loyal audiences, members and sponsors – thank you all for being part of Scottsdale Arts!
Neale Perl, President and CEO
