Mesa Arts Center's MABEL, Mobile Art Based Engagement Lab, takes community engagement on the road with MABEL.  


MABEL is an adaptable and flexible creative space and pop-up arts center on wheels with activities meant to create connections on the spot, prompt discussion, catalyze change and spark creativity through the arts.   


MABEL was created as a result of community discussions and is a key Mesa Arts Center Engagement program.   


MABEL is currently at capacity for the 2023-2024 season. We appreciate our community’s commitment to the arts and are looking forward to continued engagement at events near you! If you have a program request, check back in Spring 2024 or send us an email at
