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. These installations are always free, unscripted and unsupervised. All of this work happens through a non-commercial, non-profit organization run by volunteer directors, artists, and architects. M&A is only able to continue with the support of our community, friends, and family.
Help us realize our mission of transforming provocative ideas into new encounters. Your gala ticket features a complimentary one year membership to M&A, and so much more...
Pick up your gift bag at the end of the evening, featuring a postcard series of past installations, a special edition tote bag by artist Tanya Brodsky, and luxurious scented gifts from our friends at Aesop.
Your support helps make possible M&A's annual installation and programming, which is always free and open to the public. If you're new to M&A, you can check out our past projects and public programs here. M&A is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all or part of your contributions are tax deductible.
