IN FLUX brings together art, economic development, and property management organizations throughout the greater Phoenix area to provide opportunities for Arizona artists to create site-specific temporary public art installations in a wide variety of locations.


IN FLUX demonstrates a holistic approach to temporary public art projects through a showcase of Arizona artists presented within the context of viewing the Valley as one community. IN FLUX provides unique project opportunities for artists to expand their skills, innovatively apply their creativity, and garner public recognition for their work. IN FLUX offers new perspective on the connections between community organizations, city governments, local businesses, artists, and audiences.


The IN FLUX initiative, currently operated through the strategic partnership of eleven organizations in Chandler, Glendale, Gilbert, Mesa, Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe was launched by Scottsdale Public Art in 2010 as an initiative for temporary installations in vacant storefronts. The initiative has since continued to expand and gain momentum since its inception, increasing its positive impact on our local communities and our Arizona artists.


IN FLUX cycles begin each August with a call to artists. If you are interested in becoming an IN FLUX partnering organization, please contact Kevin Vaughan-Brubaker at kevinv@sccarts.org.
