Fox Valley

Originally formed as the Wayne-Geneva Associates in 1958, the group changed its name to the Fox Valley Community Associates in 1965, reflecting a broad base of membership from several communities along the Fox River, especially the towns of St. Charles, Geneva, and Batavia.

With a membership of over 200, Fox Valley Community Associates works in close association with the Art Institute to provide comprehensive programs which promote an appreciation of the visual arts. Trips to the Art Institute, as well as to other regional cultural venues are highlights of the program year. Additionally, the group also supports local outreach programs in art education.
