Introducing the ReConnect Campaign

The campaign to ReConnect our community to Foothills Art Center and the Astor House through the arts


At Foothills Art Center, we believe that giving everyone access to the arts transforms live and communities.

We help children, aspiring artists, and community members discover their creative voice and gain the confidence to share it with the world.

The ReConnect Campaign is a purpose-driven effort that reconnects Astor House to our community and breathes new life into our current Gothic-sanctuary location through the construction of a new creative campus.

Thank you for supporting us

Good old-fashioned, mailed checks are always an option and just as fun for us to open when the mail arrives!

Serving our community since 1968.

A new creative campus opening summer 2023.

The ReConnect Campaign allows us to reinvest in our current gothic-sanctuary home at 809 15th Street with major improvements to serve our artist community.

This includes accessible classrooms, a new ceramics studio, and space to create with rentable artists studios.

“Foothills Art Center believed in me years before I believed in myself”

Mattie O., Artist

It’s time to bring Astor House back to life.

Astor House will be a place where EVERYONE can reconnect with each other. It’s a piece of our history where new ideas can shape the future of our community through the arts.

“The arts give life to the community. They enrich our lives. They remind us of our shared humanity. They tell our stories. They communicate when words fail. All these things make us better people. That’s why I support Foothills Art Center.”

Bob Dolian, Donor
