Scottsdale Public Art Exhibitions

(Location & Hours)
Scottsdale Public Art in partnership with the Scottsdale Public Library present exhibitions and educational programming that strengthens awareness of the arts and stimulates community dialogue.

Current Exhibition:

Cultural Savant: The Art and Collections of Joe Willie Smith

Joe Willie Smith is an artist, musician, and designer. He is also what current American culture calls a “picker.” He has an innate sense for finding value in cast-off objects that are given away to thrift stores, found on the street, in the desert, and un-noticed by others. He is a cultural treasure hunter. And a lucky one.
