Arts & Culture

Art is in our soul, and our partnership with Cattle Track Arts & Preservation enables us to share it with our guests through their work at the resort, workshops, meet-the-artist events, and more. You’ll find must-see museums and other interesting cultural discoveries in the Valley of the Sun.

Cattle Track Arts & Preservation

We are proud to partner with this local organization that recognizes, celebrates, and furthers Scottsdale’s cultural heritage through art and craftsmanship. Originally a homestead built in the 1920s, it soon became a place for creative souls to gather, where artists worked to explore their passions and enhance the world around them; however, the impact extends far beyond the compound itself.

Works by Cattle Track artists can be found throughout Andaz, from bungalows to public areas, and we regularly host events where we bring guests together with these artists to engage, learn, and find inspiration. Resort guests also can enjoy VIP tours of the Cattle Track Arts Compound, which is less than a mile away, to experience the artistic lifestyle and creative process.
