When our senses are set free, unexplainable phenomena occur…

The Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Arts presents AURA, Saturday, May 10, 2014. Please join us at the Museum for a night to delight all of the senses, an evening of interactive environments inspired by dramatic weather and breathtaking seasons.

AURA is the 2014 annual benefit gala supporting the mission and vision of SMoCA. The Museum will have all the exhibitions taken down so that the galleries, the Lounge and the outdoor Skyspace area will be completely transformed into new, dazzling environments for one night only. The re-created wonderlands will engage attendees and their five senses in colorful and imaginative scenarios inspired by the natural world. Video art, art installations, performers, plentiful food and drink, creative auction items, a once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity raffle prize and the most interesting people in the Valley will enliven this evening of festivities.
