As we all safely emerge this spring from almost two years of cocooning, the annual celebration we all know as The ARTrageous Gala, will be celebrated next April 2nd, at 7:00pm and this year the gala takes the name of LUMINESCENCE (for reasons you will find soon), and will raise funds to support Scottsdale Arts and its various cultural organizations:

Annual arts celebrations and events centered in the world of arts:

and the continued education of the world of arts in all market sectors and all levels on our community through;

As you enter the imaginary portal, the cinematic and dynamic living art installations will make you and your guests feel energetic, effervescent, and full of light!

LUMINESCENCE will be the perfect combination of living art installations and expressive cirque art-nouveau acts by the Kansas based group Quixotic to take the Scottsdale Stadium, proving that art is able to conquer any space, and any place.

Enjoy a fabulously designed menu while entertainers create intensive juggling acts as part of the three experiences during the upcoming LUMINESCENCE gala, reminding us that the world of arts and its many expressions can inspire the moment.

A three-part gala, LUMINESCENCE will open with a Hollywood-style, live-streamed red carpet event, once again hosted by the remarkable Carey Peña, founder/owner of the media power company Inspired Media 360, and co-anchored by journalist and artist himself Brandon Lee.

As night falls, the black box at the Scottsdale Stadium will feature artists filling the room with acrobatic moves suspended above a dinner showcasing a specially designed menu.

Act after act will entertain and lead us to the dynamic live auction with the one and only Auctiontainer Letitia Frye.

To close, gala guests will glide over to our speak-easy, our guests-only, whisper-talking DJ dance party designed to revive that memory of being together with the people and art we care about – and remind us that togetherness and art are universal gifts.

My Co-Chair Anita Lang and myself will be welcoming you to enter into a new dimension,
