Welcome to MAFA
Our history of service in the arts goes back more than 50 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.

This 55th Celebrate the Arts Show & ChalkFest will feature our third chalk festival in Monrovia with cash prizes, over 40 booths of local fine artists demonstrating and displaying their work, art by Mt. Sierra College students, and kids art and teen urban art activities.
This year's show is slated for Saturday, October 5 with the theme, “Art Changes the World." It will feature quality live entertainment on the Station Square Park stage and popular food trucks and restaurants.
