Mesa Arts Center

This facility is both a major cornerstone and revitalization project in downtown Mesa consuming a very large city block. As the largest Arts and Performing Arts Complex in Arizona, the center includes 4 performance venues (1,600-seat, 550-seat, 200-seat, and 99-seat studio theatre), an arts education facility for both graphics and performance, an art gallery, and meeting spaces. Additionally, three acres of the site provide for civic gatherings and outdoor performances. The venues include:

Ikeda Theatre - variable acoustics for the Mesa Symphony and 1st run touring roadshows such as Annie

Piper Theater - fixed-variable optimized acoustics for drama, the Sonoran Desert Chorale, touring and local groups’ use

Playhouse Theater - children's and other community use.

MCH provided full-scope acoustical and audiovisual systems planning and design for the entire complex.
