Art Intersects Community Spaces

IN FLUX brings together art, economic development, and property management organizations throughout the greater Phoenix area.

IN FLUX provides opportunities for Arizona artists to create site-specific temporary public art installations in a wide variety of locations.

IN FLUX utilizes 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.

History of IN FLUX


A strategic partnership of six organizations in Chandler, Gilbert, Peoria, Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe was launched by Scottsdale Public Art in 2010 as an initiative for temporary installations in vacant storefronts. Read about the origins of IN FLUX.


The initiative has 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 April with a call to artists. If you are interested in becoming an IN FLUX partnering organization, please contact info@influxaz.com.
