Scottsdale has always been the equivalent of fun and culture whenever people think about visiting Arizona. And luckily, the Scottsdale Arts Festival is still happening! Same as last year, the festival is purely virtual, which allows you as much time as you want to immerse yourself in the art world.
Art in Scottsdale
Scottsdale has one of the most vibrant art scenes in Arizona. Many galleries focus on sharing artwork created by under-represented artists, including POC artists and artists from the LGBTQ community. Some of these galleries include the Gilbert Ortega Native American Galleries, the Udinotti Gallery, and the Art One Gallery.
Due to concerns about the pandemic, the March Scottsdale Art Festival will remain virtual. However, the format didn’t stop artists from participating. Once again, the festival has an astonishing lineup of artists in all disciplines, including painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, metalwork, and more.
The festival features 180+ juried local, regional, and national artists. You can find daily features and artist introductions on their social media pages.
Do you know another reason people are so excited about the Scottsdale Art Festival is the food? In the past years, the various food vendors stationed across the festival ground has always been as exciting as the art itself.
This year, the festival added a brand new section called the Taste of Festival exclusively on social media platforms. Each day, a unique food truck will get a shoutout on Facebook and Instagram. That way, you can order takeout from the food vendors while you enjoy the brilliant artwork.
Most art organizations around the Valley have had a challenging year due to restrictions created by the Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, now is the perfect time to support the Scottsdale Art Festival, so they can bring the in-person festival back when things go back to normal.
