The Main Street Prototyping Festival

Today in Mesa, Arizona there is an interesting festival that examines art in a very different way. Items on display include a tunnel built of swim noodles, a trash-collecting turtle and other experiments that include urban planning. It’s called the Main Street Prototyping Festival and is an idea borrowed from San Francisco. The two day event will continue tomorrow as well.

20 prototypes are on display to answer the question about how to use activities and gathering spaces to make downtown more active and interesting. Everything is set up along Main Street between Country Club Drive and the Mesa Art Center. It’s worth coming out to check out the many ideas.
