Mesa Arts Center


I drove out to Mesa on Friday to have lunch with a close friend I hadn't seen a while and I decided while I was there to stop by the Mesa Art Center to take some photos.  It really is an impressive art center with not only performance spaces but places for workshops and classes too.  It has a very contemporary design with a lot of attractive features.


One of the great features is this stream of water that runs from one end of the center's campus to the other.  You can see a little of it in the photo on top too.


And here you can see where the stream begins with the water gushing from those pipes above.


This photo shows the performance center from the Main Street side of the facility.


Near the back of the facility, the stream ends and this covered walkway takes it's place artistically mimicking the look of the stream of water.  

I took a whole lot more photos at this place so I'll throw a few more in here and there.

The theme for City Daily Photo bloggers on February 1 is
"A Scene from a Cafe or Coffee House.

A really neat building. I also like the stream. And of course all the windows!

That is not the Mesa I remember. I worked there in 1962-63 and it was a relatively small town. We tried to buy our first house there, in an orange grove. It was $12,500 and I didn't qualify so we ended up buying a Hallcraft home in Scottsdale for $11,500. :) This is a super addition to the Mesa community.

Thus far, the architecture really appeals to me, Sharon!

Very nice. I like the sails and the last pic!

Very, very nice design but I wonder about any use of water in AZ that doesn't meet an immediate physical need, human, industrial or agricultural.

Exactly how an arts centre should look Sharon, like a piece of art itself! I bet you could catch lovely reflections in the stream that flows through, love the idea of the walkway mimics the stream, more lovely reflections!

It is an elegant design, Sharon, and your photographs are all quite stylish.
