Celebrating Lives of Achievement
The Fox Valley Arts Hall of Fame was officially founded in 2001 to give public recognition to artists associated with the Fox Valley by birth, education, residence, or service who have achieved national or international acclaim.  The organization got its start more than a year earlier during a commemoration of the Millennium.

The artists honored with induction every other year represent the visual arts, performing arts, literary arts, media arts and educator/curator/benefactor.  Each must have served at least twenty years in his or her profession.  A second objective of the Fox Valley Arts Hall of Fame is to ensure a strong cultural legacy for future generations.
The Class of 2014 brings the total number of inductees to 50. Celebrated at the May 1, 2014, banquet held in their honor, are (left to right) standing: Dr. Brian DuSell, accepting for his father, D. Lee DuSell; Jim Gibson; Randal Swiggum; and George Shipperley. Seated are Elvina Truman Pearce and Linda Rock, accepting for Jane Peterson.
