Amococo at MAC
Friday, March 11th - Sunday, March 20th
This interactive exhibit has traveled the world and now you can see it right here at the Mesa Arts Center.  Here's the description: "This luminarium is a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes where Islamic architecture, Archimedean solids and Gothic cathedrals meld into an inspiring monument to the beauty of light and colour."   Purchase entrance to the exhibit at $5 for 20 minutes.  It is advised you preorder tickets online to ensure availability.  You need to arrive early too, so you'd better go here to read what this is all about and to order tickets.  For more information about the artists and cool pictures of Amococo go here.
