SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Beginning January 15, 2024, Scottsdale Public Art will remove “Diamond Bloom” from its location at Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West and place the artwork into safe storage before construction begins at the museum.

Construction breaks ground in late January 2024 for the museum expansion. Once the two- to three-year construction project is complete, Scottsdale Public Art and the city of Scottsdale will work with the artist, Curtis Pittman, to relocate “Diamond Bloom” appropriately near the museum.
