The Art of Elysium is a non-profit organization dedicated to building bridges between the professional arts community and children whose lives are constrained by illness. Our “full-circle” mission helps fuel new artistic work and advance careers while bringing improved quality of life and emotional healing through the arts to medically fragile children and their families. The Art of Elysium’s focus on helping artists build their careers and fulfill their artistic visions so they can in turn help ill youth creates a self-sustaining model of operating that is cost efficient, artistically compelling and replicable.

The Elysium Full Circle encompasses four arts platforms:

Elysium Collections (Fashion Design), Elysium Project (Fine Arts), Elysium Sessions (Music), Elysium Industry (Theatre/Media Arts), Elysium Esteem (Girl Talk & Yo lo tengo) and the VIEW (Visual Imagery and Environmental Wellness program).
