The Foundry Art Centre Becomes a Division of the Greater Saint Charles Convention & Visitors Bureau

As we transition into the New Year, the Foundry Art Centre is undergoing its own transition. On January 1, 2021, the Greater Saint Charles Convention & Visitors Bureau, a department of the City of Saint Charles, became the new operating manager of the Foundry Art Centre.

The Foundry becomes a division of the Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) after months of discussion amongst the Foundry Board and City leaders. This move will create opportunities for the Foundry to become more involved in events and programming in St. Charles, while continuing to be a vibrant home for the arts. Along with this transition, the Foundry has undergone staffing and leadership changes.

“We are excited about this new chapter for the Foundry,” said Dan Krankeola, Director of the Saint Charles Convention and Visitors Bureau. “The Foundry really is a gem in our region and we are looking forward to enhancing the offerings it will bring to residents and visitors.”
