IN FLUX Initiative Description and History
IN FLUX demonstrates a holistic approach to temporary public art projects through a showcase of local Arizona artists creating original site-specific artworks presented within the context of viewing the Valley as one community while providing artists with a unique opportunity to expand their skill-sets, showcase their creativity and garner public recognition for their work. IN FLUX offers new perspective on the connections between community organizations, local businesses, artists, and audiences.
Scottsdale Public Art launched the IN FLUX initiative in October 2010 to connect with and support local artists, merchants, and property owners—bringing renewed vitality to downtown Scottsdale through a series of multi-disciplinary temporary art installations in vacant storefronts. After a successful first year, IN FLUX returned spring 2012 for a second cycle featuring expanded programming and a ground-breaking partnership with Tempe Public Art to reach new audiences and artists throughout the Valley.
IN FLUX Cycle 3 brings together seven organizations representing seven Valley cities—Chandler, Glendale, Goodyear, Mesa, Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe. This expanded strategic partnership increases the positive impact of this initiative on both our local communities and our Arizona artists.
