From its inception in 1936, the Mesa Art League has been community-minded, supporting the arts, the children and those in need, through its generous donations.

The Mesa Art League developed the following objectives and definitions of purpose:

The participation with art-oriented groups similarly dedicated to the cultural growth of the visual arts,

The provision for and development of suitable venue for members in the promotion, exhibition and sale of members’ art

The recognition and encouragement of young art students through scholarship awards and other incentives.
