  • Located along Scottsdale Waterfront,  “The Doors” by Donald Lipski stands a monumental 28 feet tall with mirrored panels inside to capture what it is like to be inside a kaleidoscope.

 

  • Bronze Horse Fountain Scottsdale AZOne of the most photographed landmarks in Scottsdale, the “Bronze Horse Fountain” by Bob Parks showcases 5 Arabian horses springing forth from the fountain. The piece is found in the intersection of 5th Avenue and Marshall Way.

 

  • Another most photographed landmarks in Scottsdale is the “Jack Knife” by Ed Mell. The giant bronze piece is modeled after the city's official seal. It features a cowboy bucked up to a bronco in the intersection Marshall Way and Main Street.

 

  • The Yearlings Scottsdale AZMade by George-Anne Tognoni, “The Yearlings” depicts three bronze yearlings galloping and since become an icon of free spirit in the West. Witness the iconic monument in the Scottsdale Civic Center.

 

  • A take on contemporary art, “Knight Rise” by James Turrell is one of only 3 skyspaces open to the public in the US. Turrell says it provides the opportunity to “look at our own looking.” At sunrise or sunset, viewers experience the sensation of the descending sky. Knight Rise is located within a custom-designed chamber by architect Will Bruder at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.
