The McCormick Scottsdale, formerly The Millennium Resort and Villas Scottsdale, recently completed a renovation of all their guest rooms and has included the art of three local students.

Twenty-two of local artist, Trish Mayberry’s art students submitted artwork and Millennium leadership from the United Kingdom and Singapore traveled to Scottsdale to make the final selections.

“Millennium wanted to showcase some art indigenous to the area and what better way than to use local artists. We had the great fortune and privilege to make the selection from several of Trish Mayberry’s student artists. The fact that it is the artwork made by young student artists is something no other resort in the valley has and what makes us unique,” stated the resorts General Manager, Michael Feeley, in a press release.

Three pieces were chosen to be hung in all the guest rooms, according to the release. Featured artists include, Paige Satterfield, 13, an eighth grader at Desert Shadows Middle School; Katie Bussoletti, 16, a junior at Notre Dame Preparatory High School; and Raj Walia, 12, who attends Sonoran Sky Elementary.

“I’m so pleased that my art students have received such tremendous validation of their talent,” stated Ms. Mayberry in the release. “Art is such a vital element of society. Having an international hotel provide a showcase for student work is exceptional, and I thank McCormick Resort for their support of budding artists.”

The McCormick Scottsdale will be hosting a “meet the artist” reception on Sunday, June 28, according to the release. The resort is at 7401 N. Scottsdale Road.
