Scottsdale Public Art and CODAworx will converge in November as the annual CODAsummit: The Intersection of Art, Technology and Place comes to Scottsdale during Canal Convergence | Water + Art + Light.
CODAsummit is a three-day conference for all individuals and companies that are involved in creating large-scaled, commissioned art to consider how technology-infused art installations can change the way environments are experienced. Produced by CODAworx, this year’s CODAsummit will be hosted by Scottsdale Public Art Nov. 10–12 at the Scottsdale Arts campus and other locations in Old Town Scottsdale.
Canal Convergence is a free, annual, 10-day temporary public art event at the Scottsdale Waterfront, featuring light-based and interactive art installations from around the world, exciting performances, creative workshops, educational opportunities and more. This year’s event, organized by Scottsdale Public Art in association with other branches of Scottsdale Arts, is scheduled for Nov. 5–14 and will focus on a theme of “Art and Technology” in connection with CODAsummit.
“We’re excited to return Canal Convergence to the Scottsdale Waterfront with our in-person programming, including live music, food and beverages,” said Kim Boganey, director of Scottsdale Public Art. “Additionally, we are honored to be hosting the premier public art conference, CODAsummit, which will bring visitors to Scottsdale from across the globe, many of whom will be experiencing Canal Convergence for the first time.”
