April 25, 2018

Beginning Friday, May 4, the ‘aliens’ of Fantastic Planet are landing in downtown Mesa. This larger-than-life installation of 6 inflatable, illuminated humanoid sculptures created by Australian artist Amanda Parer will arrive in Mesa for a 10-day stay, May 4-13, 2018, marking its premiere in the United States!

Greet the ‘aliens’ on Friday, May 4, 6-10 p.m., with a free kick off celebration hosted on the north end of Mesa Arts Center’s campus. See 3 of the 6 sculptures, hear live music, see dance and atmospheric performances, find food trucks, tasty drinks and more.
