Utilize the maps below to find your class and find a parking space! The first week of class all students will be given a parking permit to keep in their car when they visit Mesa Arts Center. This allows students to access the Mesa Arts Center Parking Lot on the northeast corner of 1st Avenue and Center Street, even if there is a performance in the theaters! 

 

Tickets are not issued the first week of class, but may be issued to cars in the lot that do not have the parking permit. Additional free parking is available on Center Street, Main Street, Sirrine, and 1st Avenue.
