Are you ready for a double scoop of fun? The Art of Ice Cream is the newest pop-up food art exhibit devoted to Arizona’s favorite dessert year round, ice cream! Located in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale, the interactive museum is home to more than 7 themed rooms that are more than Instagram worthy in my opinion. From the banana split room to the giant pink ice cream cone boxing ring- The Art of Ice Cream is fun for the whole family, just don’t forget your camera.
In each room you will have an opportunity to engage with the exhibit through colorful and interactive art including giant popsicles, a 7 ft. tall milkshake, and a bowling alley with ice cream scoop balls. What’s an ice cream experience without the freezing cold treat itself? After entering through a giant freezer door, guests are treated to ice cream treats and samples during the sensory journey.
One of my favorite parts of the whole project is the graffiti from J. Pierce. Not only is he one of the nicest guys on the planet, Pierce has found a passion in fine arts, product design and custom urban murals to touch people and their emotions. His use of colors and patterns makes his work unique and attractive to both− the young and the young at heart which is the perfect demographic for The Art of Ice Cream. Find his murals (and giant sprinkles lips!) throughout the exhibit and make sure to take a few minutes to color on the interactive coloring wall he designed!
Overall, The Art of Ice Cream is worth a trip. Plan to spend about an hour there and all ages are welcome. Kids 3 and under are free, 4 – 12 years in age are $15.00. 13 and older tickets are $25. One more tip, leave the coat at home. The ice cream may look real but coats are not necessary.
