The Fox Valley Arts Hall of Fame recognizes artists associated with the Fox Valley by birth, education, residence or service, who have achieved international or national acclaim. Candidates should have completed 20 years in their professional field and received recognition for excellence. The honor is for living artists or can be awarded posthumously.


The Fox Valley Arts Hall of Fame (FVAHF) was a dream of Lucille Halfvarson and other arts leaders that took tangible form during the millennium (2000) celebrations in Aurora, Illinois.  A series of two-minute history sketches for public television briefly put the spotlight on violinist Maud Powell, an Aurora resident who, a century earlier, had the musical world at her feet.

The committee that worked on this project evolved into the Fox Valley Arts Hall of Fame; a not-for-profit organization that gives public recognition to artists associated with the Fox Valley. 

A second objective of the FVAHF is to ensure a strong cultural legacy for future generations. Inductees are honored with engraved plaques that are displayed at the Hemmens Cultural Center in Elgin. For more information, please email
