Review for Art On The Square Foundation Inc, Belleville, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Art on the Square has brought together a community in support of the arts in a collaborative effort that is seldom seen. This event brings together artists from around the world while at the same time highlighting the artistic talents of high school students and other young performers. This family friendly event not only brings much needed revenue to the businesses in our area, it has become a source of great pride for our city. Volunteers manage every aspect of the project, from the co-directors down to the trash clean-up. Those who want to attend a safe, relaxing event that celebrates the arts need to come to Belleville, Illinois on May 15-16 and see how small-town, civic minded individuals can put together the #1 Rated Art Event in the country.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my community. I have seen a new appreciation for the arts that reaches way beyond one event. Other artistic programs like Wine Dine n Jazz and the placement of sculpture pieces throughout our city have grown out of the excitement over Art on the Square

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing what a group of , committed volunteers can accomplish when they work together and how they can continue to attract new volunteers because of their enthusiasm and passion for this event.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

from all walks of life, and repreesnting many age groups from grade school to retirees. They are so passionate about what they do that their enthusiasm has lit a fire within the whole community. Art on the Square is a source of great pride for everyone.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

continue to sponsor a first-class event with the same committment and enthusiasm without having the ongoing worries that come from needing to raise the funds to put-on such a beautiful, well-organized event.
