Oddball Art Labs



Oddball Art Labs is a non-profit artist based organization created to advance the presence of the arts. Our focus area is in the Fox Valley and greater Chicagoland area. We specifically work to build recognition for artists, and to create opportunities. We aim for artists within these communities to show their work through various ways.

Oddball Art Labs is known for hosting art shows and featuring artists of the month through various social media platforms. We also continue building relationships with local galleries and area businesses.  We also cater to artists by providing resources in preparing grants and putting on their own shows.

With our galleries and events happening all over be sure to stay up to date through our Facebook page


While in downtown Elgin keep your eyes open for the Oddball Art Labs Mobile Art Machine, a re-purposed 1950’s cigarette vending machine that has been converted to sell tiny pieces of artwork by local artists for only five dollars each. It travels to different businesses with artwork that is updated regularly. It’s a fun way to support local artists.
