Stitching Mesa Together Community through Making

this exhibit will feature crafting demonstrations almost every Saturday. check out some of our crafters below

Ron  Carlos- Paddle and Anvil Pottery

Copyright: The Heard Museum

Ron Carlos is a Pima (Akimel O'odham) artist. He is possibly the last master of the technique of Paddle and Anvil pottery making still active in the Salt River Valley. This technique dates back to the ancient Hohokam people of the valley and produces an exceptionally thin, fine grained ceramic wall on the vessel. Ron's work will be on display and for sale in our shop during the Stitching Mesa Together  exhibit.

Museum Store Friday & Saturday!

For the third year in a row, on Sunday, December 1, 2019, the Museum Store Association (MSA) celebrates Museum Store Sunday, the signature annual international event and consumer shopping campaign that directly supports arts and cultural institutions around the world. Since the Mesa Historical Museum is not open on Sundays, we are doing our campaign on Friday and Saturday instead.

At the Mesa Historical Museum we have items handcrafted by local crafters such as felted hats, scarves, boots, bags, and clothing along with handmade quilts, leather goods, baskets, jewelry, Pima pottery, and much more! By doing your holiday shopping at the Mesa Historical Museum, you not only support the museum but these local artists as well!

The Mesa Historical Museum is going to have a deal on our Museum Day Friday & Saturday (Nov. 29-30) where if you purchase $40 worth of gift shop items, you get free admission to the museum!

Check out some of the handcrafted items we have in our shop!

For groups of 5 or more we offer docent led tours of the current exhibit. The tour includes special content about the exhibit in particular, and Mesa History in general. The tour is also appropriate and approachable for children. Groups of 10 or more are only $3 per person. Call us at 480-835-2286 or e-mail us at info@mesamuseum.org to make arrangements today.
