In 2003, Materials & Applications began with the idea that creative experimentation should take place in public space. Since then, M&A has produced more than 20 site-specific installations — each of them inscribed into the landscape of Los Angeles. M&A is only able to continue with the support of our incredible network who came out on November 11, 2017 to help make the future of M&A possible!
