An artist’s colony marked by adobe structures from the 1930s, Cattle Track is one of Scottsdale’s best-kept secrets. It may be located in a typical residential neighborhood, but Cattle Track’s story is extraordinary. Fritz Scholder, known for his Native American paintings, lived and worked here. So did abstract expressionist Louise Nevelson. Philip Curtis, Cattle Track’s most famous artist-in-residence, went on to found the Phoenix Art Museum and was regarded as “the dean of arts in Arizona.” Today, creatives of all types—painters, dancers, photographers, and even blacksmiths—set up working studios that you can tour for free Monday through Saturday.
