About Art for All
Our vision is to encourage the creation and appreciation of visual art in Elgin and in the Fox Valley area.
Art for All is a 501c3 nonprofit organization created for the purpose of encouraging Fox Valley visual artists and connecting their talent with those in the Elgin community.
AFA is a community-minded group with a wide diversity of talent from every imaginable artistic medium. Our members come from all walks of life and include those with a great deal of artistic experience, those who are emerging artists, and those who simply appreciate art and wish to assist in the promotion of it in within the community. While artists are individualistic by nature, our group of dedicated members has been able to accomplish much more together than any individual could possibly do on their own while creating a support system based on encouragement and knowledge.
Art & Soul: We manage, along with the City of Elgin, the Art and Soul on the Fox art fair in downtown Elgin.
Scholarship: we provide scholarships to students who are participating in the summer Visual Arts camps held at Northern Illinois University.
