Enhancing Our Community

FAA President, Lisa Podlesak, gave a presentation with hands-on art activities to an Advanced ELA class at Chelsea Intermediate School. The students were working on a famous artist biography unit, and Lisa was happy to contribute to their learning.

Walking Art Exhibit

Frankfort Fall Festival Parade

FAA participated in the parade to promote our mission and upcoming events. Famous works for art were portrayed.

Art on Display

FAA was happy to donate funds to support the Frankfort Public Library District's art wall. Local artists work with the library to exhibit fine art for the public to enjoy.

For information about exhibiting art at the library, contact Melissa Rice at mrice@frankfortlibrary.org.

Little Free Libraries

Public Art for Readers

Four Little Free Libraries will soon be installed in the Frankfort area. This project is a partnership with Friends of the Frankfort Library, Frankfort Park District, and Frankfort Square Park District. Four newspaper boxes were donated by Chicago Tribune, and Home Depot donated the use of a truck for transportation. FAA artists painted the boxes as community works of art.

Grand Prairie Elementary School

A Map Renewed
