The Mesa Arts Center is new modern complex that features exhibits outside the grounds between buildings and it's right in the heart of downtown Mesa. There are plenty of shops and restaurants to go to before or after your event. We enjoyed the small museum with several rooms featuring local and out of state artists. Beautiful works mixed with oddities, so there is something for everyone. Parking garages available on the grounds and there is a gift shop across the entrance. The lighting was excellent and made it easy to take pictures of the artwork which was nice. The complex is also a great place to walk for the grounds, post dinner or morning coffee.
