Reopening Guidelines—Know Before You Go 

Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts’ policies and protocols are rooted in safety for our staff, our artists, and the public and visitors with who we interact. The primary goals for our response to the COVID-19 virus has always been to protect public health while continuing to fulfill Scottsdale Arts’ vital mission of art exhibitions, performing arts events and community engagement. 

  • Face masks are encouraged, but not required. 
    • All visitors are welcome to wear a face mask, if they would like for any reason without fear of judgement, isolation, or repercussion. At Scottsdale Arts, we are committed to making everyone feel accepted for their personal health decisions and we will treat our fellow employees, volunteers, artists, and patrons with respect by reciprocating their desire to mask up when in close contact.
