Founded in 1999, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA) is the only museum in Arizona devoted to the art, architecture and design of our time. Global in its focus, the Museum is a unique and vital cultural resource for the Southwest, serving local audiences as well as visitors from throughout the United States and abroad. SMoCA\'s minimalist building (an ingenious renovation of a former movie theater) was designed by award-winning architect Will Bruder and has five galleries for showcasing changing exhibitions and the museum’s permanent collection.
The Border Film Project / El proyecto fronterizo fotográfico featured more than 200 images from the BFP collection, printed at snapshot size of 4”x6”, and an installation designed by the architectural team of Luis Ibarra and Teresa Rosano, of Ibarra Rosano Design Architects. To complement the photos and film, SMOCA organized a number of public programs and cross-disciplinary projects, in hopes of encouraging constructive dialogue about immigration in the community at large.
