The Art of Elysium is an artist organization built on the idea that through service, art becomes a catalyst for social change. Our full circle approach rewards altruistic creativity by giving back to artists who share their gifts with those in need.

Artists volunteer. We support our artists.

Through service, our creative communities thrive.

The Art of Elysium was founded in 1997 to support artists working for the benefit of others.

For over twenty years, we’ve paired volunteer artists with communities in Los Angeles to support individuals in the midst of difficult emotional life challenges like illness, hospitalization, displacement, confinement, and/or crisis. We serve medically fragile children, teens, adults, seniors, those dealing with social, emotional and mental health issues, and the homeless.

Our team members at The Art of Elysium work with volunteer artists to craft creative, tailor-made programs for the populations we serve. We currently offer 110 community programs a month, serving over 30,000 individuals a year. Volunteer artist are then eligible for support services, ranging from artist salons and networking events to showcases and distribution opportunities. We currently serve 2,510 artists a year in Los Angeles.
