The STEM Alliance hosted their 8th Annual STEM-tastic festival on May 10th, 2024. STEM-tastic is a free community event that brings the wonders of STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering & Math – to life with dozens of hands-on activities. This year there were over 950+ attendees and 150+ volunteers – including Marla Beth Designs, demonstrating the wonders of “pendulum painting”!
February 2nd, 2024: Marla Beth Designs donated her popular “Happy Art” to White Plains Hospital’s annual Go Red Day.  In collaboration with the American Heart Association, Go Red Day raises awareness for women’s cardiovascular health. On theme, Marla handed out 200 painted heart canvases in appreciation to the wonderful hospital staff. The day was filled with heath heroes and big hearts!
The Marla Beth Designs “Art For A Cure” collection, graced the walls of Farida Studio in October, 2023. This “all pink paint” exhibit raised money to benefit the White Plains Hospital’s breast cancer research division in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Starting in 2020, Marla Beth Designs created and sponsored a rainbow themed tie dye booth for the Ronald McDonald House’s annual fundraiser “Dashing for Dylan”. This event reached a fundraising goal of over $67,000! This goal provides over 250 nights of comfort to families during the most difficult time in their lives. Through raising funds and awareness for the Ronald McDonald House, families have the support and resources they need to cope during their child’s illness.

Marla Beth Designs teamed up with Duck Donuts of White Plains to create some “edible art” for a cause! Designing her signature “drips and dots”,  this time with icing and sprinkles, these donuts were available for sale on July 19th, 2023 with a portion of sales to benefit Feeding Westchester. These limited edition collaborative donuts were a delicious success!

Brightening up Westchester NY’s December 2022 landscape, Marla Beth Designs donated some “painted sunshine” to the White Plains Business Improvement District’s Holiday Market! Shoppers flocked to the unveiled 8 foot selfie banner, and enjoyed snapping their holiday pics! (Also seen on News12, Dec 12th, 2022)

Marla Beth Designs took flight over the summer of ‘22 to participate in a  fundraiser benefitting local arts and  the Rye Arts Center. “Rye’s Above” is an annual public art project in Rye, NY, with the goal of uplifting the community through art while supporting educational programs in the region. Invited artists transformed blank metal butterfly sculptures into original masterpieces. The butterflies were displayed throughout the town of Rye to be auctioned off with proceeds benefiting art, education and scholarships for students in the area.
Marla Beth Designs is committed to spreading the joy of art! We have teamed up with The Arc Westchester, providing Covid friendly zoom and outdoor art classes to their talented participants! Everyone has so much fun while following along with themed painting and craft lessons.
Local artist and passionate volunteer Marla Beth, owner of  @marlabeth_designs, lead the group in a lesson on Watercolors and painting landscapes!
The Arc Westchester thanks Marla Beth Designs for their continued volunteerism! We look forward to more beautiful artwork!

Marla Beth Designs lent a helping hand in the reopening of the Westchester Children’s Museum, which was closed due to COVID. Marla’s newest installation called “Climb Every Mountain” is her first interactive mural and her 4th public art display in the NY/CT area. Families who attended the reopening had the opportunity to become part of the display, by leaving their handprint in a variety of rainbow colors.

Everyone who donated to add their handprint to the bright uplifting mural by Marla Beth Enowitz is actually lending a hand in reopening the Westchester Children’s Museum and supporting our program…

– Leta Wong, Acting Director of the Westchester Children’s Museum

“Stars for the Stars” added a little sparkle to the Palace Theatre’s Atlantic street windows, while their curtains have been closed due to COVID.

…we are grateful to Marla for making the entrance to our empty theatre alive with color. It’s a wonderful reminder that we are still here – very much an integral part of the community.

– Michael Moran, President & CEO of The Palace

Marla Beth Designs applied some magic to the mannequins of the Jefferson Valley Mall in Yorktown Heights, NY.  These fanciful pieces are placed around the mall for customers to enjoy and snap some fun “selfies” with.  Marla’s second installation was a 700 square foot mural called “Rainbow Rain” that added some needed color and imagination to an otherwise blank barricaded storefront.

We are so grateful to Marla and her eye for color, brightness and love.  Her artistic talent adds so much to our center…

– Alexa O’Rourke, General Manager of Jefferson Valley Mall

With bold colors and a message of positivity, “Gumballs” features large jumping dots – some glittered to evoke movement – that brighten and transform an otherwise blank storefront at The Westchester in White Plains, NY. Featured at the mall during the 2020 holiday season, this 600 square foot mural “acts as a glass bowl, holding the gumballs and essentially creating a larger-than-life gumball machine.”

Bravo to local artist and entrepreneur Marla Beth Enowitz, for installing a huge 600-foot mural at The Westchester called ‘Gumballs’! Marla turned her obsession with painting into a business in the height of the pandemic. Talk about inspiration.
