Migration is my most recent installation commissioned by Scottsdale Public Art for the Canal Convergence event in Scottsdale, AZ.
The work reflects upon the ever-soaring creative spirit of our valley supported by Scottsdale Public Art and on the gatherings of people seeking rest and recreation, particularly the sense of community found during events such as the Canal Convergence each year. The modular installations capture the spirit of play throughout the Waterfront sites, reminding visitors of fleeting memories of childhood and their own experiences of migration, while subtly addressing the reoccurring phenomenon of Scottsdale’s own shifting population and raising awareness on bird ecology in the Southwest.
Visit the friendly flock of birds this weekend!
