Artists Volunteer. We Support Our Artists.

Giving back to volunteer artists is a core piece of the Art of Elysium's full circle approach. We support emerging artists through a variety of Artist Services in each of our major disciplines. Services range from industry salons and meet and greets, to financing and distribution awards.


What WE OFfer

  • Art Salons. The Elysium Art Salons offer a unique backdrop for artists, influencers and brands to come together in an immersive experience where art intersects with philanthropy. Each Salon experience includes an artist lead panel discussion, followed by a musical performance and a meal by a culinary creative.
  • Fashion & Design. The Art of Elysium’s Amber Award serves as a career springboard for one young professional designer. We help produce and market a product, or collection.

  • Film & Theatre. Each year, our Tahnee Award serves as a career springboard for one young professional filmmaker. We produce and market their first feature-length film.

  • Industry Meet & Greet. Every quarter, we honor volunteers from one of our creative disciplines in a curated industry networking event. Select volunteer artists have the opportunity to preview their work at a salon event of established artists in the field.
  • Music & Movement. The Art of Elysium’s David Award provides showcase opportunities and promotional services to emerging musicians. We help build audiences and sell original music.
  • Visual Arts. Volunteer artists are eligible to apply for a Jacques Award, which provides them with resources and PR support to produce major visual arts exhibits and public art initiatives.

  • Volunteer artists create a piece of work for our Little Pieces of Heaven community show, to be hung alongside the work of those they inspired. Select Artists also support our Pieces of Heaven Exhibit and Auction, exposing their work to new collectors while raising funds for The Art of Elysium.



Service and collaboration can be healing, transformative experiences, not just for our creative communities, but for the world.

Elysium Art Salons

Elysium Art Salons offer a unique backdrop for artists, influencers and brands to come together in an immersive experience where art intersects with philanthropy.

Following in the tradition of European cultural salons, each Salon experience includes an artist lead panel discussion, followed by a musical performance and a meal by a culinary creative.

Past salons have featured the work of artists like Danny Minnick, Rufus Wainwright, James Goldcrown, and Lynne Ramsay, and the work of chefs ranging from Bruce Kalman and Derek Walker to Pace Webb and Phillip Frankland Lee.
