Here’s MFTA’s mission statement copied from their website (https://www.nyc.gov/content/mfta/pages/about-our-mission):
Materials for the Arts (MFTA) provides NYC arts nonprofits, public schools and city agencies with access to free materials. We strive to keep valuable materials from entering the landfill and put these materials into the hands of arts professionals, educators and students across the five boroughs. We give unwanted items the opportunity to become something new through creative reuse, inspired education and unlimited imagination. Better than new; it’s renewed.
Visiting the MFTA storage space was like visiting the warehouse where the government stored the crate at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark. This was my first time there, as every third Thursday, MFTA hosts free community events. I’m excited to return! Here are photos from the event (my incomplete mask is the monkey in the last photo):
