Eureka Springs Arts Community
Eureka Springs is a destination of choice for artists since the 1800's, Eureka Springs is currently home to over 200 working artists and 20+ art galleries. A proposed artist co-op which will offer subsidized housing and studio space is currently being developed. The natural beauty of the Eureka Springs, the Ozarks and peaceful environment of this eclectic mountain community make Eureka Springs a "good fit" for artists' of all mediums. In the early 1930s, Louis and Elsie Fruend established an arts school in the downtown area of Eureka Springs. Continuing the tradition, The Eureka Springs School of the Arts offers a wide variety of classes to all.
