Art in Public Places

The Sonoran Arts League believes that artistic awareness is essential to life and community and is committed to advancing artists, art, and art education.  As part of its Art in Public Places program, the League installs rotating exhibitions throughout the year at the Gallery at Desert Foothills Library, the Gallery at el Pedregal, and in the towns of Cave Creek and Anthem. 

Gallery at Desert Foothills Library
38443 N Schoolhouse Road, Cave Creek, AZ 85331 (MAP)

A rotating series of installations at the Desert Foothills Library highlight the artwork of Sonoran Arts League members.  The exhibitions include a broad range of mediums, techniques, and styles.  The artwork on display is for sale.  The Fall exhibition features work by artists participating in the League’s signature event, Hidden In The Hills Studio Tour & Sale.  The Hidden in the Hills Tour is held annually on the weekends before and after Thanksgiving in the Cave Creek, Carefree and the North Scottsdale area.

The Sonoran Arts League offers opportunities and outreach programs that specifically focus on youth – encouraging creativity and innovation in those who will lead our future. The Desert Foothills Library also serves as the site of the YouthArt  Exhibition as Studio #1 during the annual Hidden In The Hills Tour – featuring an installation of 2-D artwork by students in the Cave Creek Unified School district and local charter schools.   

The Town of Cave Creek
In collaboration with The Town of Cave Creek, the Sonoran Arts League artists have installed two entry monument sculptures by Mark Carroll and are making plans to add additional locations for the installation of outdoor art throughout the town. Additional public art by Sonoran Arts League artists and Cave Creek artists will be coming soon.
