The Village Fine Arts Association (VFAA) has been promoting the arts in the Village of Milford, Milford Township and the Huron Valley area since 1992.

Our Mission is to provide individual artists with opportunities for fellowship, inspiration and education by organizing, promoting and presenting monthly meetings with guest artists, workshops and juried exhibitions.

We coordinate and participate with other community groups in art related events to increase our visibility and to showcase our community’s creativity.

Our intent is to reach out to all artists of all ages and levels of experience and encourage them to nurture their creative spirit by providing them opportunities, education, and creative support.

Our board is representative of the community that the VFAA serves being comprised of local artists, business professionals in the automotive, healthcare and construction industries. While the current board is of individuals in the 50+ age range, the VFAA has an employee and art instructors who are representative of the younger generation that we wish to engage.

Our Director of Development for the SHAC is Andrea Perry, who is in her 30s with school aged children and connections to the Huron Valley School system, the YMCA and the Special Needs community.
