M.E.C.C.A, the Materials Exchange Center for Community Arts, is a 501(c)3 organization in Eugene, Oregon. We divert useful materials from the waste stream and teach others how to make art with them. Our office, studio, and resource center are located at 449 Willamette, and we are dedicated to providing access to low-cost arts education and materials to the public.
Our Materials Exchange is thriving since its Grand Opening in August 2002. We have successfully diverted hundreds and hundreds of pounds of reusable materials from the landfill. Our store houses many materials that encourage artists, teachers and the public to reuse and rethink what can be done with the ordinary materials around them. Come on in and scavenge with us!
Our NCS instructor, Perry Joseph, is licensed to teach art, science, and math. He is also a talented professional printmaker whose art is exhibited in public and private settings in the Northwest.
