Bruce Wall – Treasures of Scottsdale:
The Extraordinary Ellis Family

For more than 70 years, the Cattle Track Arts Compound has been a hub of creativity and innovation in Scottsdale, its influence reaching around the globe and back again, and yet the site has remained off the radar of most residents and visitors.  The family behind this one-of-a-kind home for the arts traces their Arizona roots back to just a few years after the founding of the State of Arizona.  Their contributions to the community, state, and nation have been truly extraordinary!  Learn about this unique and remarkable family and the artists they’ve helped flourish.

Bruce Wall is a Citizen Advisor for the City of Scottsdale.  Bruce has a Bachelor of Arts in Archaeology and a Master of Science from Arizona State University.  Bruce has worked for Scottsdale since 2002 in the Neighborhood Services Department, Scottsdale Police Department, and now in the City Manager’s Office of Communication and Citizen Service.  He regularly presents a series called “The Stories of Scottsdale History” for the program Scottsdale Neighborhood College.
