About the Event
Scottsdale Public Art invites you to join us for a dedication of our newest public artwork, Cholla Reflections. The piece is a collaboration between Keep Scottsdale Beautiful and Scottsdale Public Art. It is located at the northern intersection of Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and Greenway-Hayden Loop (north Hayden Road).
The project paired public artists Kelly O’Brien and Patrick Renner of Houston’s Flying Carpet Creative Studio with a local team of university students Jessica Arnold (interior design, Northern Arizona University School of Art), Rigoberto Berber-Arias, and Alan Estrada Sanchez (both Arizona State University School of Architecture).
Flying Carpet Creative Studio produced five earth-cast concrete monolith sculptures for the site and collaborated with the student team to create artistic metal elements on the bridge, sandblasted elements on the sidewalk path, and hand-cast pavers. Part of the collaboration with the student team also included Cholla Canal Water Resources Mural by Kyllan Manney on the Water Facilities building.
