Desert Perspectives: Teen Art Exchange

Daily during Tett hours
2nd Floor, outside of the Creativity Studios

Desert Perspectives features artwork created by teen artists from our sister city, Scottsdale, Arizona. In turn, the work of teen artists from Kingston, Ontario, have been on display at Scottsdale Public Library: Mustang Branch.

With a Scottsdale reception on July 1st, 2021, Canada Day, the Kingston-to-Scottsdale Teen Art Exchange included a welcome speech by Glenn Williamson, the Honorary Consul of Canada for Arizona, as well as “Walkabout”, an exhibit featuring the photography of sister city coordinator, former Kingston City Councilor, and Photographer Sandy Berg.

This program fosters creativity, curiosity and openness through cross-border exchange and collaboration. The exhibition is a collaborative effort by the Scottsdale Sister Cities Association, City of Kingston, Kingston Creative Arts Focus Program, Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning, Scottsdale Public Library: Mustang Branch, and Scottsdale Artists’ School.
