Scottsdale Public Art is pleased to announce that Canal Convergence | Water + Art + Light 2020 is moving forward this fall.

The free, large-scale public art event will take place each evening from Friday, November 6, through Sunday, November 15, 2020. However, given the impact and conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be presented differently than in years past with a focus on the health and safety of the public.

Canal Convergence will still feature large-scale art installations, but instead of featuring them all along the canal at the Scottsdale Waterfront, they will be installed at multiple locations throughout Scottsdale to increase social distancing-friendly viewing options.

Another change this year is a significantly reduced event footprint at the Waterfront, including the elimination of many activities from previous years. Instead, Scottsdale Public Art and Scottsdale Arts Learning & Innovation will host a variety of online events using streaming platforms and an augmented reality app to showcase live music, workshops, artist talks, and more.

More information on all the new Canal Convergence experience will be coming soon.
