Side Street Studio Arts was founded in 2013 as an outlet for the Elgin arts scene. Side Street provides educational and creative resources and an accessible space, run by artists. Side Street’s mission is to support the artist and artistic journey through collaboration.
The Side Street Studio Arts LAB is a shared artist space designed to support the artistic process through the housing of equipment, storage, and proximity to exhibition resources. The LAB allows artists the space, time, and resources to create.
Side Street Studio Arts THEATER opened April 2014. An intimate performance space, perfect for event rentals, additional gallery space and much more. The Theater is a one-of-a-kind venue in downtown Elgin!
