Valley students to display art at Scottsdale Museum

Students from several valley high schools will be participating in “Inside Out: The People’s Art Project” at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art May 5-15.

The Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art is at 7374 E. Second Street, in Scottsdale. The event is free to attend.

The art project is a global art project transforming messages of personal identity into works of art, according to a press release. Local students in the museum’s Vision’s program combine their large photographic portraits to cover the front wall of the museum to show the community what they stand for.

This large-scale participatory group action offers a platform for students to share their images and  stories, according to the release. Installations of the project will be documented, archived and made available online at http://www.insideoutproject.net/en.

The Vision’s program brings together 40 high school art students from diverse Phoenix metropolitan-area high schools for a year-long series of activities.

For more information call the museum at 480-874-4666 or go online to https://www.smoca.org.
