Coming Together to Celebrate Creative Reuse
Friends of Materials for the Arts believes in fostering a sense of community around Creative Reuse. Once a month, MFTA opens its doors for a variety of community events, including performances, artist workshops, discussions and gallery openings. Engage with the MFTA team and Artists in Residence while enjoying and participating in creative activities. Events take place the Third Thursday of every month. All are free and open to the public.
