East Side Story

Well, well. Mesa's done it again. No, not closed off a section of the 202 to install luxury asphalt or constructed another tract-development eyesore. The Mesa we are referring to is Mesa Contemporary Arts and the "it" is the fostering of the local art community. An example is the "Contemporaneous Corroboration" exhibit by downtown stalwarts Jeff Falk and Annie Lopez, which explores memory recall of specific events through Falk's experimental paintings and Lopez's eye-catching alternative processed photographs that are coupled with mixed-media patchworks.
