“Lots of Diversity for everyone.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

You should know that I'm an artist and very picky about whats good and whats rubbish. As a long time fan of the MAC I honestly must admit that I love the new building. It is so much more spacious than the old one. It has made it's impact on the community in so many positive ways. The art galleries and shows are always outstanding. Even when it's art I'm not particularly fond of. Now there are shows and happenings galore. Classes for adults and children of all capabilities in a variety of art forms and disciplines. There is always something going on.
I love it when they have outdoors exhibits and activities for the kids. One of my favorite shows was the "Earth Harp" concert outside the building that they anchored to the side of the building. It was wonderful! Check their schedule and plan a visit. You'll be pleased!

“Mesa Art Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I haven't been in the theater, but the art gallery had some very nice exhibits. I also stopped in the ceramic studio where a class was being held. It was full and the students had good comments to make about the classes. I look forward to a few years down the road, when it is in the center of a restored and vibrant, hopping downtown. It's a great little town.

“mesa arts center a gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a terrific venue with excellent sight lines and comfortable seating
throughout. The shows include musicals, comedy and drama, with many
national performers during the year. The convenience of the downtown location,
accessible parking and a growing number of area restaurants only adds to the
value.
