New Bubble Fountain a Playground for the Senses by quotes

The Scottsdale Mall area has a cool, new fountain – guaranteed to prompt a giggle and take the edge off of the late-spring heat.
The fountain is located in the vaulted walk-through space outside Orange Table and Blue Moose restaurants, 7373 Scottsdale Mall, next to the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.

When a passerby walks through the tower, scented bubbles float down creating a fun and refreshing atmosphere to greet the onset of summer. The bubble scents alternate between citrus, mint and salt water.

Artists Mellisa McGurgan and Marco Rosichelli recognize the appeal and fascination of water to the desert dweller. Water cools, cleanses, and entertains. This fountain without flowing water will invoke a universal playground for the senses.
