One of the things we LOVE to do as Creative Catalysts is bring art to unexpected places. Infusing an element of creativity into existing events might lead us to eventually recognize art as an expected part of our experiences, rather than a surprising and possibly out of place piece of the puzzle. This is the case for a handful of festivals in Downtown Mesa, specifically the BrewFest happening March 4th on Macdonald and Main Street. This will be our second year working with the Downtown Mesa Association to bring local artists to the event to create live art pieces. Last year those artists created the beautiful murals that now live permanently on the side of the OneOhOne Gallery. This year, the CC group will use our three-paneled metal frames to provide a 4x8 space for three artists to showcase their amazing skills. Because let’s be real, the ability to paint with aerosol, live, AND large scale is unique, interesting, and something to be celebrated. We are excited to have Dski One, Steve Caballero, and Averian Chee representing what CC loves so much: bringing beauty, art, and creativity to the places we want to be.
Join us for BrewFest in Downtown Mesa on March 4th starting at 1:00 PM. The only beer festival that gives you full pours and a magical taste of local art to boot.
