Mesa Arts Center's mission is to inspire people through engaging arts experiences that are diverse, accessible, and relevant.

Located just about 25 minutes east of Greater Phoenix you will find the largest comprehensive arts campus in the entire state, the Mesa Arts Center.

This massive (210,000 square feet) performing and visual arts complex was completed in 2005, adding a 'unique complex of theaters, art galleries, and studios' to the area's already quickly growing arts and culture scene. There are a total of 4 theaters, 5 galleries, and 14 studios within the Mesa Arts Center, making it easy to see why Trip Advisor has named it a top-rated destination for Things to Do in Mesa.

There are several regular live performances, allowing you to enjoy the finest entertainment and world-class visual arts in the area. You can see shows that encompass Broadway, classical, concerts, dance, jazz, comedy, and special speakers, or you can simply spend your visit taking a tour of or self-exploring the museum collection. The collection holds contemporary works of traditional media and works on paper, including ceramics, fibers, basketry, metals, wood, glass, jewelry, book arts, and more.
