Silverleaf homes are ideally situated to take advantage of the many museums and cultural events that Scottsdale offers its residents. The Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art is a museum dedicated to bringing the best of contemporary artwork to the city. It rotates nine to 12 new exhibits each year, so visitors will always be able to see new and exciting pieces. Currently on exhibit is Bruce Munro’s installation entitled Ferryman’s Crossing. It was developed as an extended meditation on Herman Hesse’s novel Siddhartha and invokes a beautiful, if ephemeral, sense of light and beauty with rows of CDs lit by pulsing lights. In May, Silverleaf real estate owners won’t want to miss the annual SMoCA Mix, an exploration of the intersection of avant-garde fashion and conceptual art.
