About the event
Each year, the program takes in donations from individuals and businesses, diverting an average of 1.5 million pounds of reusable goods from the waste stream. These donations are provided, free of charge, to MFTA’s member organizations who find innovative ways to create artwork, productions, theater performances, gallery exhibitions, dance costumes, educational programming, and public arts events. Over the years, Materials for the Arts has become a staple in the NYC arts and educational communities by teaching the value of Creative Reuse and supplying endless materials for arts programming.
