Clue: Art + Literature Trivia Scavenger Hunt
Thursday, October 14, 2021 | 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.
The Scottsdale Gallery Association (SGA) and The Friends of the Scottsdale Public Library, which raises money to support the library’s special programs, have teamed up to present art and literary enthusiasts with: Clue: Art + Literature Trivia Scavenger Hunt. This one-of-a-kind specially-themed Gold Palette ArtWalk leads guests through an evening of traveling “Trivial Pursuit.”
“We’re pleased to partner with The Friends of the Scottsdale Public Library to present this fun and engaging trivia night that encourages both art lovers and literary aficionados to work together to find the answers to our ‘clues’,” says Scottsdale Gallery Association President French Thompson. “Part of what makes Scottsdale so unique is the high level of cultural experiences available to our residents and we think this will be one of those that people won’t soon forget.”
Clues or questions will be posted in the front window of participating galleries. Each clue is intended to intrigue and entice visitors with a question about a well-known artist, many of whom have ties to Arizona and/or Scottsdale in particular. Answers to the clues will be inside each gallery. Approximately 20 galleries are participating in this progressive trivia night.
During the event, the Friends of the Scottsdale Public Library will be stationed at the Casa des Artistes Plaza, centrally located in the Scottsdale Arts District, with a booth featuring giveaways, information about group membership as well as library membership, ways to support the organization, a prize wheel, gently used books for sale, and more.
