This is one of my favorite art shows in this area! I have been coming for years and this was the first time my daughter was able to participate in the kids area! The bubble buss, the children's museum, the crafts and Aria's favorite Jason Springs illistrations really made it special for the kids too. I will definitely be back year after year!

The Midwest Salute to the Arts was a fantastic showplace of art with a beautiful setting inside Long Acre in O'Fallon, IL. The art on exhibit was top-notch as were the various performances by local artists. I personally purchased some very nice Christmas presents for my family. I can hardly wait to go again next year!
Best regards,

Midwest Salute to the Arts is one of the only shows that has an interactive kids area that encourages children to explore their own artistic talent. My wife and children love spending time there making various crafts and wearing them throughout the day. As a donor it pleases me to know that my donations help make this possible. Keep up the great work! We will continue to support this great event!

The annual art show presented by the City of Fairview Heights and the Midwest Salute to the Arts is one of the best in the area. There are hands-on opportunities for kids (for free!) as well as a children's gallery (supported by works of art donated by our artists), In this way, we are trying to foster a love and appreciation of the arts at an early age. It's a wonderful and accessible show, with something for everyone.
