Scottsdale Public Art is working with Hypersonic on a public art project at Scottsdale Stadium, located at Osborn Road and Drinkwater Boulevard in Old Town Scottsdale.
The Scottsdale Stadium is the spring training home of the San Francisco Giants and hosts a variety of other development leagues. In addition to baseball, the stadium hosts community and entertainment events year-round. It is the only Cactus League venue located in a downtown setting and opened on its current site in 1956. The city of Scottsdale and Scottdale Public Art have identified the main entrance to the stadium and the grassy area on the northeast corner of Osborn Road and Drinkwater Boulevard as the optimal public art location.
The scope for the public art project focuses on the selected artist designing and installing exterior public artwork or artworks that enhance the stadium’s main entrance area. The art for this project should establish a unique sense of place and creatively reflect the character and history of Scottsdale Stadium and Old Town Scottsdale. The goal of the project is to create a site-specific, landmark artwork that creates a welcoming atmosphere for adults and children as they gather for games and events.
