Today's Four Arts Club ... tradition since 1943


The Four Arts Club, an organization based in Elkhart, Ind., celebrates culture with enlightening and entertaining programming. Music, visual and performing arts, literature and the art of living are the focus. 

Four Arts counts more than 200 in its membership, and invites nonmembers to experience up to two programs a year for just $20 per program. Meetings begin with dessert at 12:15 p.m., with announcements shortly before the program begins at 1 p.m.

Generally, programs occur on the first Monday of each month. The home location for our 75th anniversary season is Elcona Country Club, 56784 C.R. 21, Bristol. (Our June jazz fest party will be at the Crystal Ballroom, 410 S. Main St., Elkhart, and our November program will be at the Midwest Museum of American Art, 429 S. Main St., Elkhart.)
