Scottsdale is home to more than 125 professional art galleries and studios, and is a center for the arts. It is also located in the extraordinary landscape of the Arizona desert, and enjoys its best weather when the rest of the U.S. is deep in cold winter!
Its galleries and studios are most famous for their western and Native American themed art, though a growing devotion to the contemporary arts has taken hold over the past couple of decades. The Scottsdale Civic Center Mall is home to the two-theater Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, the Scottsdale Historical Museum, as well as the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. Also located in Old Town, Western Spirit: Scottsdale's Museum of the West features historical and cultural exhibits from the American West. And just a short drive away, you can visit the major metropolitan city of Phoenix, with its world-class Phoenix Art Museum.
Taliesin West, famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright's winter home and school from 1937 until 1959, is now one of the most popular tourist attractions in Arizona. The complex is located in the northeast fringe of the city, at the base of the McDowell Mountains.
