Volume 17, Number 4
a Square Mile of Unique Style
A publication of Downtown
Mesa Association promoting
the artful downtown
With a world-class arts center, award-
winning museums, a number of private
galleries, large permanent sculpture collection,
ongoing art and cultural festival and much
more, downtown Mesa is beginning to make
its mark as a hub of the arts. It’s already the
place to watch a play, hear a symphony, see a
concert, learn a craft, take music lessons and
view all types of fine visual art, and downtown’s
future looks even more…well…artistic!
Please see page 16 to learn about
downtown’s growing arts scene and the many
businesses, organizations and public facilities
that contribute to it.

If it’s what’s inside that counts, then down-
town Mesa really is a "Square Mile of Unique
Style." Venture inside downtown businesses,
churches and public facilities and you’ll see
mammoths, large trees, giant musical instru-
ments, a city made of art, characters from
fairytales and other wonders. Please see page 24
for a photographic tour of some of downtown’s
most interesting building interiors.
