1951 @ SkySong

SkySong, the ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center, offers local entrepreneurs a collaborative space for their ideas and innovation to thrive. Named for the year Scottsdale was incorporated, 1951 @ Skysong is an event and collaborative workspace that combines 1950s décor with the latest collaboration and communication technologies. The resulting, vibrant atmosphere is infused with the daring visions of the past while equipped to advance today’s entrepreneurial innovation.

The spaced is adorned with Americana on loan from the collection of Scottsdale real estate entrepreneur, Michael Pollack. It includes a Bob’s Big Boy statue, an ASU Devil neon sign, a rocket-shaped gumball machine, a Marilyn Monroe neon sign and a Wurlitzer juke box, among other collectables.
