Checking Out The Mesa Contemporary Art Museum and the Great Artwork

You should put it on your list if you haven’t come out to see the Mesa Contemporary Art Museum. The museum is in the Mesa Art Cente, close to a light rail station, and has parking.

It is also lovely to just walk about the Mesa Art Center and look at the outdoor art displays and architecture. There are also a few waterfalls and fountains to look at and enjoy.


Mesa Art Center

The Mesa Art Center is a performing and visual arts complex in downtown Mesa, Arizona, with four performance venues and visual and performing art classroom studios. There are indoor and outdoor multi-use areas scattered throughout the campus.

Mesa Contemporary Art Museum

The museum showcases contemporary art by emerging and internationally recognized artists. You will find smaller artists and many of them local.

You won’t see the museum from the street when you drive by the Mesa Art Center. All you will see is a tiny glass building and on the lower level is where the museum is located.

There are 5 large rooms that have an assortment of visual arts. Each room or gallery gets new art, and there is something new to see each time you visit. About every three months, you will see brand new art on display.

The museum also offers lectures by artists and art workshops.


The Valley Metro Light Rail station is just across the street from the Mesa Art Center, making it very convenient. There is also plenty of parking near the center.


The museum is one of the best in town. It is a great place to take the family and get exposure to contemporary art. The art is constantly changing, so the next time you come back, it will be different and never get old.

The tickets are free (they do accept donations). You can get the updated information here.
