About FAME

FAME,  the Foundation for Art and Music in Education,  was founded in 1986 with the belief that elementary and middle school students need special opportunities outside of school to create,  exhibit,  and perform works of art.  What started as the FAME Festival in 1987 is now an acclaimed year-round arts education program for children.

Ongoing annual programs focus on a current world arts study and through the following programs FAME brings the study to the classroom:  Visiting ArtistsComposition ProjectFusion of Concert ColorsFAME Summer Arts Camp,  regional festivals,  Celebration of Youth Concerts,  Teacher Workshops,  and Culture Kits.

The annual FAME programs have touched the lives of more than 150,000 school children and their families throughout the school year and have reached more than four million people since 1987.

FAME is a proud principle partner and funded member of Arts United of Greater Fort Wayne.
