World class art is always evolving at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, and this spring the museum welcomes three new art exhibitions.  

"Akunnittinni: A Kinngait Family Portrait" showcases a visual conversation between three generations of Inuit women -- a grandmother, mother, and daughter. The exhibit, looking at the cultural history, historical moments, and sometimes harsh memories, is on display through May 27. 

"Today's Norms Are Tomorrow's Luxuries" showcases artist Luis Alfonso Villalobos, and features painting, video and an installation that incorporates architecture into art on a large scale. The exhibit will be on display until May 13.

"southwestNET: Acid Baroque" has Mexican-American painter Claudio Dicochea showing off paintings featuring historical figures, along with contemporary popular culture, examining mixed race identity and stereotyping today. The feature is on display through May 20.
