We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The grounds are beautiful and the inside is extremely interesting. Love the infinity pool and the one outside yard area has some very neat sculptures. The bridge over Tempe Town Lake is more than just a bridge. It's architecturally a very interesting design. We saw people taking a bike tour of the area and going... More

The Tempe Center for Arts is located right along side Tempe Town Lake near Downtown Tempe. The whole complex itself is absolutely beautiful. It is super modern chic and unique look. I love going to the Center because its always so much more than just going to the theatre. It's definitely an experience. When you walk in you a greeted... More

My husband, daughter and I visited the TCA on two occasions on our recent trip to phoenix. Our first visit was to see the Page to Screen exhibit which depicts various drawing and memorabilia of primarily historical American books and stories which have become TV shows and films. Examples included MASH, Winnie the Pooh, Cinderella, Snow White and James Bond.... More

We booked a family wedding at this venue and it turned out to be a wonderfully tasteful and sophisticated location, with highly experienced and capable staff to guide us through the wedding. The TCA offers good quality catering options and an absolutely stunning room for social events, with a patio overlooking Tempe Town Lake adjacent to the main event location.... More

Great volunteer staff when we came to see childsplay put on junie b jones. Sat last row of balcony one and had an excellent view of the stage and I think all seats feel like good seats since it's such a small venue.

I visit this place regularly while on my morning walk. It sets the rest of my day, as fresh as it can get. Meet fellow joggers on the way and exchange smiles. The windy setting and the blue-dyed salt river makes it all the more attractive - a must visit, you'll love the place.

During this month, there will be a lot of events happening here. We visited the Gallery and their sculpture garden. Our walk through was guided in details as we were the only couple there early in the morning. You'd be in awe as the various arts, sculptures are presented.

Attended a dance show here. We were in the studio theater, which was a smaller room, but still had a big, beautiful stage with great lighting and sound quality. During intermission we enjoyed walking outside and checking out the water and fire (which sure felt nice on a December night!). Parking was plentiful and free.

I've been to this facility on Tempe Town Lake a dozen times. Great building with a great view to see jazz series, comedy, youth theater, and whatever else happens to be passing through town. If you get a chance to see something in the Lakeshore Room, the view is amazing.

I haven't seen a show there yet, but have been involved with ASU events that have been held at the Center. What I really appreciate about the center is that it has a very unique and edgy look, in contrast with Gammage Auditorium. The use of concrete, glass and neon gives it a current and relevant feel, boosting Tempe's cool... More
