The Scottsdale Museum of the West also had a small sculpture garden that I found to be quite attractive.
The back wall of the garden is a work of art in itself. It's called "Weeping Wall" by landscape architect Colwell Shelor. The wastewater that collects from the heating and cooling systems is diverted through the wall and into the planter in the center of the courtyard. The running water over the metal wall makes beautiful patterns.
This sculpture by Doug Hyde is called "Evening Chat" and it sits in the center of the garden. I love the very calming a peaceful look it has.
If you live in Arizona or are visiting the state, this museum has a lot to offer. Be sure to put it on your list of places to visit.
