We are kicking off the season, and no, we aren't talking about football. At Mesa Arts Center's Season Kickoff Festival you can gaze at contemporary art inspired by literature or get hands-on with activities and art projects. Stroll though the five new exhibits and take in the the non-stop live music and entertainment including spoken word performances.


Don't miss the book signings by local authors, performances by Humor Writes, live painting demonstrations, community art projects and more. Also be sure to check out Mesa Art Center's artist cooperative gallery and snap a photo with the performers from Vessel Project. 


With all this excitement you are bound to work up an appetite. Stop by the local food vendors for a bite to eat and enjoy your evening under the stars admiring Mesa's newest art.
