Little Egypt Arts Centre

Little Egypt Arts Association is a not for profit artist Co-op that was established in 1995 by approximately 20 local artists and art patrons. At first they didn't have a building until a very generous contribution of Mrs. Powell in 1999. Once a building was acquired they grew into a very dynamic teaching and showing facility in Southern Illinois for the visual arts. LEAA is an art organization dedicated to teaching, showing and promoting the arts.
