Scottsdale Public Art with the support of the City of Scottsdale presents Los Trompos: 10 brightly colored, interactive “spinning-top” sculptures created by award-winning Mexican artists and designers Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena. Functioning as both artwork and rotating seating spaces, each sculpture acts as a gathering place for relaxation, social interaction and entertainment. Beginning on Nov. 25 the public can engage with the Los Trompos sculptures at various locations across Scottsdale’s downtown. As time progresses, the sculptures will travel to different locations around the city and eventually join together at the Scottsdale Waterfront for Canal Convergence, Feb. 23 – 26, 2017.
Following the installation of Los Trompos, Esrawe and Cadena will give an exclusive artist talk as a part of Scottsdale Public Art’s Conversation with the Artist series on Thursday, Dec. 1, 6–8 p.m., at the Casablanca Lounge in Scottsdale.
