Through the generous support of the Reva & David Logan Foundation, Side Street Studio Arts, NFP is embarking on an exciting transition - moving to a permanent location in downtown Elgin! Our future home, located at 62 S. Grove Ave., will allow our exhibition, performance, education, and advocacy programs to all live under one roof, offer greater accessibility for all, and quadruple our space. 


The Logan Foundation has purchased this historic riverfront building and will rent it back to Side Street for a nominal amount. This will save our organization approximately $50,000 per year, which can go back into programming and paying artists. That said, we have grand plans for build-out and programming growth, and we need your help!


Your tax-deductible donation of any size will help us.

June 2022 Update

We are happy to announce that our asbestos abatement team will begin the procedure on July 19, ending the first week of August. This will allow us the ability to begin interior demolition in preparation for buildout. Also, we have been bouncing ideas off our amazing architects and are receiving updated sketches and plans for the building weekly. When we finalize the drawings we will have a clearer idea of what funding will be necessary to achieve our dreams. So, stay tuned for further updates on the project and how you can help make our forever home a reality!
