Season Kickoff Festival at Mesa Arts Center
September 9, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Mesa Arts Center will launch its 2022-23 season with a free, family-friendly festival titled Make Your Mark on Friday, September 9, 6-10 p.m. The Season Kickoff Festival is themed Make Your Mark. The theme plays on a larger call to action to “make your mark in society” and have a purpose-driven life but is also a tongue-in-cheek reference to New York City’s anti-graffiti campaign during the 1980s: “Make your mark in society, not on society.”
Festival Highlights include event host Mo from Alt. AZ 93.3 FM, live music by DJ Pickster, Breaklot, Abby Walker, Sophie Dorsten and Elmo Kirkwood. New art exhibitions in Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum, shopping at The Store featuring items by Arizona artists, delicious food from Taqueria Las Palmas, Classic Crepes, Yoi Hibachi, Bonzai Boyz, Fried Joint Sonora Sam’s and more! Unique public art installations by Daniel Funkhouser, Melissa Martinez, Noelle Martinez, Matt Smith, Eric Torres, Sarah Hurwitz, Lalo Cota, Amanda Clayton and Jason Begay.
Don’t miss out on family fun activities: by i.d.e.a. Museum and Arizona Museum of Natural History the Glow Zone, Sticker Swap, Selfie Stations, Art Studio Demos, Tabletop Games, Comic Book Creation, Augmented Reality, Live Graffiti Demo and more!
