Community Arts

The Beautiful Stuff Project rescues materials that would otherwise be thrown away & uses them for art and creative play. We use our materials to build community & to bring neighbors together. We participate at community events & festivals & partner directly with established community-based programs interested in extending the services they offer through the inclusion of art and conversation. 

We specialize in Collaborative Community Mosaic Projects.

Collaborative Mosaic

Another cornerstone of the community-building work we do is through our Collaborative Community Mosaic Projects, overseen by community arts director, Emily Bhargava.

Organizational Partners

Collaboration is our middle name. We love to partner with community organizations to integrate art making into their work for community building, healing, and fun. We can come to you or you to our storefront.
