New temporary installation to come to the Scottsdale Waterfront

0610Ns Entertainment (GoldenWaters)

Scottsdale Public Art is to present GOLDEN WATERS, a temporary art installation from international artist Grimanesa Amorós available for viewing beginning June 10.

Since its construction in 2006, Scottsdale Public Art has worked closely with city departments as well as private developers to commission original works of temporary and permanent art, in addition to providing free community events at the Scottsdale Waterfront.

Inspired by and reflecting the natural elegance of Arizona’s canals, GOLDEN WATERS is to be mounted on a secure structure attached to the Soleri Bridge, located southwest of the intersection of Scottsdale and Camelback Roads, according to a press release.

The hovering light sculpture will extend parallel to the canal channel 80-feet west of the Soleri Bridge and its sculpted LED tubing system will appear to rise from the canal waters below, celebrating the union of light and water.

The light-based installation of GOLDEN WATERS is scheduled to be completed on June 10, and remain on view nightly through September 2015.

A special event with GOLDEN WATERS artist Grimanesa Amorós is being scheduled for June 18, with details available closer to the installation’s completion. For event updates, visit
