Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum would like to announce the development of the Family Art Packs, our newest art education program designed to encourage inquiry and participation within our contemporary art exhibitions. The Family Art Packs are totes full of arts engagement activities, games, puzzles and books as well as a complimentary guide entitled Art Through A Spyglass. Use this guide to “spy” in our galleries and enjoy exploring the artwork with targeted activities. Our Family Art Packs are available for checkout at the visitor’s desk in the lobby of MCA Museum.


For more information please contact 480-644-6562.


This program was sponsored by Salt River Project with additional support from the Mesa Arts Center Foundation.
