Since there wasn't much to do we decided to take a little walk through the arts center and snap a few pictures.
The Mesa Arts Center was built when I was still in high school and holds monthly art classes, plays/concerts, and gallery showings. I feel like we are pretty lucky in this area to have an arts center in almost every surrounding town (the Tempe Arts Center is about a ten minute drive in the other direction for me), and hopefully soon Scott and I will be able to participate in an art class or two.
The arts center is made up of a few different buildings, with a courtyard area in the middle. I thought the above view of a hanging sculpture in one of the art galleries was just too pretty. Hopefully soon we'll be able to go to the arts center during the day and check out all the different shows going on there right now.
The arts center is filled with all different kinds of designs, and interesting lights. This staircase is by far one of my favorite features of the center, and is so fun to climb up.
One of the arts center's most popular features is the color changing light walls that are placed throughout (courtyard and street view areas). I remembering coming to the arts center when I was younger and taking pictures with old friends in front of the light walls. This time around Scott and I couldn't really resist taking a few fun photos:
Lately we've been trying to figure out some new fun activities to do on our nights off, and visiting the Mesa Arts Center was definitely a good pick (and somewhere we hope to visit again soon).
