Such a beautiful museum and store.

Great hidden gem, I wish more people could go and enjoy this beautiful place and museum. The boutique sells the must precious pieces of art that the same students and local artists make for sale and help the school and museum.

The worst ordering system ever.
Dec 2020
The Mesa Arts Center has the WORST online ordering system I have ever seen! It is slow, always. It crashes constantly. Whenever there is a big performance with a lot of interest, the system WILL GO DOWN. You won't be able to get the tickets you want because of the system itself. I don't know why they don't just use Ticket Master or some other ticket system. Instead, they have their own system that is clearly designed by a 12-year-old.

If you have to go to this venue, then you are stuck, but if you have any other option for seeing your concert, skip this place and go to the next possible performance venue so that you can actually get the seat you want. The ordering system is so bad, you can't even see what tickets you are ordering. It gives you a choice between tickets but doesn't show you even what section the tickets are in. Just price points. It looks like they haven't completed the coding on the website. That's how bad this system is.

Anytime I have to go to the Mesa Arts Center, I plan an hour and a half to go stand in line at the ticket office because their online system is worthless. I had to order online again this time because I was out of town when the tickets came online. It is as bad now as it has been for the past 8 years. I don't understand how a company can have such a poor ticket system. It boggles my mind.

I went to see Kenny G/George Benson back a couple of years back. I was impressed with the layout of the center. It was one of the most impressive centers for a performance of this nature.

The artists are real.
Jan 2020
Not only was this place first class, it was clean, modern, well designed, and easy to negotiate even for folks with disabilities. As an added plus I was admiring a particular print in the reception area and saying how much I liked it. Little did I know, but I was speaking with the actual artist who did the original painting. I think this happens often at the Mesa Arts Center. What a treat!!!!

Amazing Art Center
Dec 2019
took my wife and in-laws to the Mesa Arts Center - what a magical time! We were especially enamored by the musical walkway outside - We were having a blast with the melodies and were getting quite the amused looks from the light rail riders waiting for the train. The art exhibits were thought provoking and the entire campus is geared so that you can watch folks making their art in various spaces. We did not take in any of the shows sadly, so I cannot review those. The art shop was amazing and the pricing was quite surprising! If you need a neat gift, this is the place to get it.
