Keep Scottsdale Beautiful and Scottsdale Public Art are excited to collaborate on a beautification project at the northern intersection of Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and Greenway-Hayden Loop (north Hayden Road). The goal is to turn a destitute-looking area of Scottsdale into a point of pride for the community.
The project pairs public artists Patrick Renner and Kelly O’Brien of Houston’s Flying Carpet Creative Studio with a local team of university students Jessica Arnold (interior design, Northern Arizona University School of Art), Rigoberto Berber-Arias, and Alan Estrada Sanchez (both Arizona State University School of Architecture).

Flying Carpet Creative will produce public art for the site and collaborate with the student team, which will design elements for the adjacent areas that intertwine with the theme, materials, shapes, and colors of the art, creating a cohesive look for the intersection. The project will positively impact Scottsdale residents and visitors for generations to come.

Through this beautification project, the hope is to further the awareness of environmental issues in the desert and the value of sustainability in the community and in the world at large.
