IN FLUX temporary public art installations coming to Tempe
The City of Tempe will feature four temporary public art installations as part of IN FLUX Cycle 7. The artworks range from sculptures on plinths in public parks to large scale installations that scale public buildings. Each project is temporary and created in response to the site.

IN FLUX is a temporary public art installation initiative that brings together greater Phoenix-area cities and towns and property management organizations to provide opportunities for local artists to create site-specific temporary public art installations. This program provides a new perspective on the connections among community organizations, city governments, local businesses, artists and audiences through public art.
The IN FLUX initiative, currently operated through the strategic partnership of four organizations in Chandler, Gilbert, Scottsdale and Tempe was launched by Scottsdale Public Art in 2010 as an initiative for temporary installations in vacant storefronts. It has since continued to expand and gain momentum, increasing its positive impact on our communities and our Arizona artists.
