The Peoria Fine Arts Association was officially formed in 2001 by several members of the Peoria Arts Commission who recognized a need for such an organization in this part of the valley. It currently has about 50 members who live in Peoria and its surrounding cities.
The mission of the organization is to promote a spirit of loyalty, good fellowship, and development of original art forms among the membership; to promote ethical principles and practices; to provide art exhibitions by members, open to the public and to promote educational programs. PFAA promotes art education by annually awarding a scholarship to an outstanding art student from each of the high schools in Peoria Unified School District. For more information, visit pfaa-az.com.
