"Getting Your Money's Worth" with Judith West
- Executive Director, Materials for the Arts
If you're a non-profit cultural organization or school, there are free materials waiting for you at Materials for the Arts affiliated with the New York City Department of Education. A huge re-use program operated by Harriett Taub, executive director, the program is also an excellent way to recycle your unwanted items ranging from buttons, bows and furniture to costumes (not clothing). Even if you think your item is not arts material, check with Ms. Taub. You'll be surprised how creative her organization is at adapting everyday items into arts projects. In fact, Materials for the Arts offers education classes to teachers to show them how to make use of unusual materials. Operating since 1978, Materials for the Arts is the largest provider of materials to the New York Public Schools. Learn more from Ms. Taub on Getting Your Money's Worth with Judith West.
