Thunderbirds Charities Supports Mesa Arts Center’s MABEL, the Mobile Art-Based Engagement Lab, with $10,000 Grant

Mesa Arts Center is excited to announce a $10,000 grant from Thunderbirds Charities supporting MABEL, the Mobile Art-Based Engagement Lab, providing access to arts in underserved communities.

This grant enables MABEL to offer free hands-on art experiences and activities to create connections, spark creativity, catalyze change and prompt discussion. MABEL is a colorful 12-foot modular trailer offering the flexibility to provide an ideal space for any artistic experience. Intended to be an extension of the Mesa Arts Center campus, MABEL serves as an easy access point for anyone to engage with the arts.

“Community-building engagement is at the core of our mission,” said Danica Marlin, community engagement specialist at Mesa Arts Center. “Thunderbirds have been our biggest champion in this effort affording us the resources and support to continually create experiences to be out in the community with one another.”
