“Turning the museum on its head...one Friday at a time!” That’s SMoCA Lounge’s motto. The brainchild of local bon vivant and all-around rascal Tania Katan, SMoCA Lounge is Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art’s hippest happening. Original programs include Lit Lounge, at which local writers and performers read new essays written just for the event; Arm Wrestling for Art, a fundraiser in which, well, attendees actually arm wrestle one another to win an original work of art. And then there’s the Good ’n’ Plenty Artists Grant, where local artists compete against one another to win cash for their next art project. The rest of the time, the lounge—a big, bright red room full of repurposed packing crates—is filled with live music, poetry slams, films, and humor. Open most weekends until 9 p.m., with free museum admission after 5 p.m., SMoCA Lounge is hipper than most everything else happening in Scottsdale.

A couple of years back, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art hosted a lecture. That's not unusual -- museums do that kind of thing all the time. But this was a particularly inspiring speech, one we've remembered. Adam Lerner, director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, came to town to talk about his unconventional approach to audience development. This has included a series called Mixed Taste that brought together disparate interests -- imagine, for example, a... More »
