Arts & Culture

Art is in our soul, and our partnership with the Cattle Track Arts & Preservation Compound provides a platform to share it with our guests, either through their work at the Resort, interactive meet-the-artist events and workshops, and more. Our concierge can also arrange museum tours and other interesting Valley of the Sun cultural discoveries.

Cattle Track Arts & Preservation

We are proud to partner with the Cattle Track Arts & Preservation Compound. This local organization recognizes, celebrates, and furthers Scottsdale’s art and craftsmanship heritage. Originally a homestead built in the 1920s, it soon became a place for creative souls to gather, and now, nearly 100 years later 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 Andaz Scottsdale Resort, from the bungalows to the restaurants and other public areas. We regularly host events bringing guests together with these artists to engage, learn, and find inspiration. Resort guests also can enjoy VIP tours of the nearby Cattle Track Arts Compound, to experience the artistic lifestyle and creative process.
