Free Recycled Art Materials in NYC!
Materials For The Arts is a non-profit organization that collects and then donates materials for arts and cultural organizations, public schools and community arts programs in order to support their programs. Materials are gathered from companies or individuals getting rid of leftover wood, paper, fabric, furniture, computers, electronic equipment, etc and then everything is stored in a giant warehouse in Long Island City. In the process they divert hundreds of tons of waste from the landfill and help get materials to people that otherwise might not be able to afford. You may even qualify to be a recipient. What a cool idea!
