Prototype festival happening this weekend in Mesa

On the corner of Main Street and Center in Mesa is an example of the 20 prototypes you can see here this weekend.

"They are experiments, they're lets try out this concept and idea and see if it does in fact enhance connectivity or invite people to downtown," Casey Blake said. "We would love to see many of them become permanent in downtown Mesa."

Blake, a spokesperson for the Mesa Arts Center, says the answer is art. All of it is interactive, like this living topography piece that I got to try, which was a sneak peak for FOX 10 cameras.

There will also be a mega enormous spiral art and a wandering art car.

The festival continues through 10 p.m. on Saturday.
