More About Chesterfield Arts
Chesterfield Arts is the source for everything art-related in Chesterfield and West County. The nonprofit is dedicated to supporting programs for the visual, literary and performing arts.
Art classes, taught by professional artists, are offered for kids and adults, and Chesterfield Arts partners with several other metro arts groups on educational programming. They sponsor the Arts Alive! performing arts series and founded the Chesterfield Writers Guild. The gallery exhibits work from local artists, and the collection switches every eight weeks.
Chesterfield Arts is also dedicated to cultivating public art in Chesterfield. As of fall 2010, they had helped acquire and place more than 15 sculptures, including The Awakening by Seward Johnson.
