Part of the Scottsdale art complex that also houses the Center for Performing Arts, the so-called SMoCA is an impressive little museum. Most come for the permanent installation Knight Rise, one of light artist James Turrell’s incredible sky-spaces. But it’s also worth checking what is on display in the airy exhibition rooms. Past shows have included the goose bump–inducing work of music/sound artist Janet Cardiff and a misty water installation by Danish-Icelandic wunderkind Olafur Eliasson.
