Cattle Track Arts Compound

We are proud to partner with the Cattle Track Arts Compound.  This local organization recognizes, celebrates, and furthers Scottsdale’s art and craftsmanship heritage. Originally a homestead built in the 1920s, it became a place for creative souls to gather. Now, nearly 100 years later, it is a communal experience where artists work and interact to explore their passions and enhance the world around them.

Works by Cattle Track artists and artisans can be found throughout the Resort, from the bungalows to the restaurants and other public areas.  We regularly host events to bring guests together with these artists to engage, learn, and find inspiration. Or allow our concierge to set up VIP tours of the nearby Cattle Track Arts Compound, to experience the artistic lifestyle and creative process of the resident artists and artisans.
