Canal Convergence’s free experience features innovative large-scale installations, creative programming, and fun activities. This year, much of the event can be accessed online with new virtual experiences, including augmented reality artworks and streaming entertainment. The public art installations will be on view throughout Old Town Scottsdale and the Scottsdale Waterfront. 

Canal Convergence seeks to challenge artists to find our collective common ground through public art. For Canal Convergence 2020, we endeavor to address themes of inclusion, communication, collaboration, and community engagement alongside our perennial focus on Water + Art + Light, sustainability, and water conservation.  Stay tuned for upcoming programming announcements. And get excited about the announced artworks—invite your friends and family to join in!
