We believe art is about human and divine connection as well as a journey towards the articulation of truth. Our stories and experiences are interwoven with threads often unseen - perhaps one act of artistic expression can unravel, unwind, and reveal with startling beauty and truth. Elysian means, "creative, beautiful and divinely inspired." At Elysian, we exist as a home for creation in order that our processes and pieces might inspire and bring wholeness to ourselves and to those that experience the art along with us. Elysian is a place where artists of all mediums are able to be challenged by each other, yet encourage and collaborate in order to meet a more ideal end to a specific vision.  

From installations to choreography to music to fine art, we invite you along with us to discover the renewing work of creation and artistic expression. 


We exist for your process. We want to be a place where you as an artist feels nurtured,  challenged, inspired, and free to articulate your creative voice. We strive to be both a  support system and catalyst.  We recognize that we as artists need goals and a certain amount of structure in order to grow. We provide structure to inspire and a platform to  present. We desire to share the journey of the creative process with you. Contact us if interested in being a participating artist.
