The Atchison Art Association is a non-profit organization partnering with the Muchnic Foundation, other like-minded organizations and engaged citizens who work and live in Atchison. They bring resources to Atchison and surrounding communities that support their work in the arts. They are a network of artists and art advocates. This community-based cause is supported through passionate volunteers who work to increase the understanding, appreciation and awareness of art's vital role in enriching lives and the livability of communities. They open doors to individuals and communities in Northeast Kansas who want to get engaged in the arts and the many positive ways that lives and communities are changed.
