  • Went there April 29, 2017 through the courtyard after attending the end of year party for Mesa United Way. Nice, quiet atmosphere with friendly staff and a variety of different art pieces using different mediums around the world. They even have fabrics on display and a place to make your own arts and craft near the entrance. No flash photography allowed, but you can take pictures using your phone. The best exhibit there was the Black Box exhibit where there was a outer space vibe. They also had fliers for anyone interested in purchasing the pieces in that exhibit.
  • Went to see a performance here in their middle sized auditorium... I love the public spaces here, but the acoustic engineering and way that speakers fire from far above the audience made it feel like we were watching a show with voices coming from above, not from the performers. And that's a huge part of the experience.
  • MAC has become the Cultural Arts Center for Downtown Mesa. There's always something "happening @ MAC" whether it's art classes for all ages, Arts Festivals, Showcase musicians, top notch concerts, or one of the prestigious art exhibits visitors are never displeased. Every aspect of MAC is a work of art, even the ground cover around the foliage was given careful consideration. Next time you are enjoying a latte while seated somewhere on the grounds take note of the bits of colored glass used for ground cover. Every line, structure, lighting is a conglomeration of visually appealing art.
  • Very easy to get to being in Mesa and directly adjacent to the light rail. I've seen several concerts here and a few events. A family member had their graduation here. Very nice facility. Try the singing stepping blocks they are fun.
  • I bought tickets to the Sesame Street Live show for 5/3/17 on the Mesa Arts Center website. I selected the Gold seats and underneath that said Sunny Meet and Greet. It said to show up at lease an hour early for the meet and greet, so since my daughter absolutely loves Sesame Street its basically all she watches, we show up two hours early just so we could have a good spot in line for her to meet them all. We arrive there and I'm getting in line to be stopped by someone checking for tickets I show her them on my phone since I had them emailed to me. She stated that these aren't the meet and greet tickets and pointed me to a lady at a booth. I tell her I needed the meet and greet passes since we wasn't being allowed in the line. She stated the same that they were not meet and greet. I pulled up the Mesa Arts Center website and go to the area to purchase tickets where it stats on their own website that what I got had meet and greet included. She connected her manager and they talked for a bit and got off the phone. She stated that her manager said that must of been a technical error and that she was sorry that I should have looked at my tickets. I explained to her how would I know and look at my tickets since I wouldn't have seen then until I buy them?! The manager came over because I wanted nothing more then to see my daughter's face and to meet the characters she loves. I explained the same thing again and showed her the website saying they are including. I even took a screen shot of this for proof just in case. All she would say is that there website is incorrect and it was a technical error. I asked her she are you going to honor what your website was advertising? She said no. It was by far the worst customer service I have ever dealt with. The show was great and she loved it but the employees and the place was beyond terrible.
