Forget the pumpkins and the autumn leaves. For like-minded creatives, the fall season starts at the museum. On Friday, September 13, Mesa Arts Center invites the community to celebrate the arrival of new works as it hosts the free 2013 season kick-off, dubbed Remix, Remaster. This evening street festival will feature a live graffiti mural by Such and Champ Styles, painting by Lauren Lee and Kyllan Maney, and music from DJentrification, as well as art demonstrations, theater performances, photo stations, food, drinks, and more.
The festivities will coincide with the museum’s opening reception premiering new exhibitions including “Devoncionales: Neo-Colonial 'Retablos' from an Archetypal Perspective,” “From Lemons to Lingerie: The Still-Life Redefined,” and “Messin' with the Masters,” a series of contemporary pieces playing off definitive works in art history.
The 2013 season festivities run from 6 to 10 p.m. One East Main Street. Admission is free, and the event is open to the public. For more information, visit www.mesaartscenter.com or call the box office at 480-644-6500.
