The Virgin Valley Artists Association is the nonprofit 501c3 organization that operates the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery in Mesquite. VVAA, with financial support from the City of Mesquite, is planning activities to showcase the 10th Anniversary of the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery in 2013. The gallery and art center complex were built in 2003 to expand the City’s cultural core that was anchored by the Virgin Valley Heritage Museum.
