Art with Gay
The Place Where We Come Together

El Dorado Festivals & Events, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, operates the Murphy Arts District (MAD), and relies on a variety of funding sources, including contributions, to make its activities possible. MAD is dedicated to inspiring, educating, and empowering individuals through the arts and humanities by presenting a diverse selection of culturally-rich performances, popular artists, and community and educational programming. Our mission is to create and sustain an Arts & Entertainment Destination that acts as a catalyst for cultural and educational change for the region.

Your generosity will enable MAD to share its arts and entertainment with visitors from around the world each year. We are grateful to our members and donors for their support and hope you will help us continue to build our MAD project.
