Scottsdale Arts Celebrates Judd Herberger

All of Scottsdale Arts mourns the loss of a great friend and passionate supporter, Judd Herberger. Our hearts go out to Billie Jo and the entire Herberger family during this difficult time.

Judd and his family’s legacy of philanthropy will endure forever. To honor his achievements, we are dedicating this year's entire Canal Convergence to the memory of Judd Herberger. We will celebrate his life with special events and have created a memorial display at Soleri Plaza.

Canal Convergence 2021: Nov. 5-14

Canal Convergence returned to the Scottsdale Waterfront Nov. 5–14, 2021, with the central theme of “Art & Technology.” Through this theme, alongside the event’s perennial themes of Water + Art + Light, interactivity, and sustainability, Scottsdale Public Art was able to show the public what a significant role technology has in the creation of Canal Convergence.
