Arts Council of East Dundee 

The Village of East Dundee Arts Council is passionate about fostering a vibrant and inspiring arts and culture scene within our community. 

Our Mission: 

Enrich the quality of life through art, beauty, and creativity. 

Our Vision: 

We envision East Dundee as a place where people are inspired and creativity thrives; where arts and culture unite, enrich, and celebrate our community.  


We're proud to be actively shaping the artistic landscape of East Dundee through various engaging projects.  

  • The painted mural along the bike trail (at 11 Jackson St) captures the spirit of the wildlife that call the Fox River their home.  
  • Chalk art sessions at the Depot have brought color, vibrancy, and interactive art to the heart of our village. 
  • Black + White Art Show: Feb 10, 2023 at Black & Gray Brewing. Submit your monochrome artwork to display at an art show from 6pm to 9pm with awards from jurors as well as the public vote on best submissions. Learn more > (link to page for Black + White Art Show)
