THE LIMAN FOUNDATION MATCHING GRANT
Friends of Materials for the Arts is excited to announce that Ellen Liman and the Liman Foundation have generously offered a $25,000 matching grant. Give back to get back and help Materials for the Arts help you. MAKE A DONATION TODAY!
Materials for the Arts (MFTA) is a program of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, with support from the Departments of Sanitation and Education. We collect a wide variety of reusable materials from businesses and individuals and make them available for free to nonprofits and civic organizations with arts programming and public schools. By providing a way for people to donate their unneeded supplies to thousands of creative and educational activities across the five boroughs, MFTA diverts over 1 million pounds of materials from the landfill each year. Friends of Materials for the Arts is our official nonprofit partner.

The MFTA Gallery presents the new artwork of artist-in-residence Vadis Turner. Her Storm Systems resemble paintings, but are actually made with fabric and ribbons donated by NYC’s fashion industries. Events are sponsored by the Rauschenberg Foundation as part of the 2013 Marfa Dialogues on art and climate change.
