Thank you so much for your generosity. Thanks to individual donors and members like you, we met our stretch goal of $25,000—after exceeding our original goal of $20,000! This investment will help us continue to serve our creative community with virtual workshops, free maker sessions, and studio access for dedicated artists, while also protecting our future as a nonprofit arts center.

We are grateful for community members like you who value artmaking and togetherness, especially at a time when traditional ways of coming together and creating have been upended. Keep making, keep moving, and be on the lookout for new virtual opportunities in the near future!

Members and donors are the heart of MCBA. Help ignite creativity and community through the book arts! Join our family of supporters by becoming a member or making a donation today.
