Side Street Studio Arts strives to support and elevate the role of the artist in society. With thoughtful attention to those who have been systemically underrepresented and under recognized, artists of color, and those who identify as female and LGBTQ+, Side Street aims to lead, serve, and advance the voices of the artists of Elgin and beyond.

As our first initiative under our new ADVOCACY arm of Side Street, we are extremely excited to announce The Stringa monthly publication showcasing work inspired by and in response to the world around us. For more information and to submit, please click HERE.
