The Most Beautiful Twirl in the World

Art. That the kids can play on. Brightly colored, beautiful spinning seats mean super fun outing plus our highest rating for photo ops!



The amazing art advocates at City of Scottsdale say: “Scottsdale Public Art activates outdoor public spaces throughout Scottsdale with the temporary fall installation, Los Trompos: 10 brightly colored, interactive “spinning-top” sculptures created by award-winning Mexican artists and designers Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena.

Functioning as both artwork and rotating seating spaces, each sculpture acts as a gathering place for relaxation, social interaction and entertainment. The public can engage with the Los Trompos sculptures at various locations across Scottsdale’s downtown, and as time progresses, the sculptures will travel to different locations around the city and eventually join together at the Scottsdale Waterfront for Canal Convergence, Feb. 23 – 26, 2017.”

      It is soooooo fun! They are only around until the end of February so I would say make sure you take a spin before they are gone!

    Wow, this looks amazing. My children would LOVE this. I’ll definitely be putting this on our calendar, I just need to figure out how I’m going to get my children to leave the exhibit. 🙂
