Welcome to MAFA

Our history of service in the arts goes back more than 60 years—But we keep innovating to meet the needs of the Monrovia

community and region.  Our all-volunteer group provides opportunities for artists, student artists, kids and families and local merchants to create, exhibit and support the arts.

Artist Reception January 29, 2-5 pm

Come to a great Sunday afternoon event at the Community Center on Jan. 29: See new exhibits of work by four MAFA artists. Enjoy classical and popular music performed by the String Quartet of the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra and bring your kids to see these young musicians up close and personal. View artwork in a competition by more than 60 students from Clifton and Santa Fe middle schools. Savor refreshments from Rivanis Baking Company and Wine of the Month Club. And take art home with you from a silent auction of MAFA artists' work. Brought to you by the Artist Alley Gallery, a partnership of the City of Monrovia and Monrovia Association of Fine Arts. Artwork will be on display until April 27 and can be seen daily between 8 am and 5 pm.
