Bob Dylan said that "a hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom." Well, prepare to feel super heroic when you free yourself from the responsibility of paying for things to do this week. We've got three events for you to attend without spending a single dime. And we think Bob Dylan would be pretty cool with that.
Arizona artist Kaori Takamura explores women's everyday feelings through her intricate and vibrant mixed media paintings of ordinary objects, especially through the motif of stitching. Takamura's "Patched" will be on display in Mesa Arts Center's North Gallery, located at One East Main Street in Mesa, now through Sunday, August 16. For more information, visit mesaartscenter.com.
