Art of Ice Cream exhibit brings a scoop of cool to Craftsman Court

Old Town Scottsdale will welcome a cool new art exhibit that begins Thanksgiving weekend.
The Art of Ice Cream Experience will be housed in a two-story building on Craftsman Court, just north of Third Avenue. The themed rooms will be filled with color, texture and interactive engagement.
“It’s a pop-up exhibit,” said spokeswoman Sharon Krieger. “Essentially, it’s a very colorful backdrop for Instagram heaven. Every space will have its own themes, its own textures and its own things to take pictures with.”
The rooms are dedicated to milk shakes, banana splits and popsicles, and they will have interactive themes.
The Art of Ice Cream Experience officially opens on Friday, December 1, but a soft opening is scheduled for Thanksgiving weekend. The hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; the exact location will be revealed soon. Guests can choose their arrival time, and will have approximately 60 minutes to explore the vivid spaces. Ice cream tastes and treats will be available for sampling.
“It’s a great opportunity to get out and do something a little different, besides eat Thanksgiving dinner and go Black Friday shopping,” Krieger said.
“Ice cream is like mac and cheese. It’s a good, universal language that most people around the world — and our country – associate with and understand. We have fond memories of it from childhood.”
Presale tickets are available, so ice-cream loving guests can scoop up their spots. A limited number of tickets will be available each day. Groups with more than 35 guests must contact the office directly to reserve tickets. The space is also available for private and corporate events and holiday parties.
