Starry Night | An ARTrageous Gala


Join our community for a fresh and glamorous event for the arts in Scottsdale, filled with live red-carpet cocktails and music, dazzling new art, and guest performers from around the country – all part of an exciting evening of gourmet dishes and fun under the stars.


This reimagined ARTrageous Gala will celebrate the 20th Anniversary the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and showcase our vision for an exciting future for the arts in our city.

This evening should prove to be a fabulous evening looking back at the founding of SMoCA—a unique and vital cultural resource for the Southwest—and exploring how its history will help shape our future.


This year, we debut of Scottsdale Arts’ new Herberger Award for the Arts, which will be presented to Dr. Robert Knight, SMoCA’s founding director.


The program will also honor those visionaries who were instrumental in the birth of the SMoCA, including

• Will Bruder, SMoCA architect

• Sam Campana, Former Scottsdale Mayor

• Kathy Hotchner, former director of Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts

• Frank Jacobson, former CEO of Scottsdale Arts

• Carolyn Robbins, former curator of education for Scottsdale Arts

• Randy Schilling, former director of development for Scottsdale Arts

• Valerie Vadala-Homer, former director of Scottsdale Public Art

• Ellie Ziegler, philanthropist and former Scottsdale Arts board chair


Proceeds from Starry Night will support the future programs for the important missions of our four branches, which drive the arts for our city:


Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts

Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA)

Scottsdale Public Art
