Donate to MUSE!




The Museum of Universal Self Expression or M.U.S.E., Inc. began in 2003 in Chicago, IL. Started by Diane Green & Bob Buchholz, this 501(c)(3) non-profit has created a variety of art programs throughout the city of Chicago for over 15 years.

MUSE's mission is to support and/or create art programs for artistically underserved communities and for people in recovery. MUSE has developed a new avenue over the past 3 years. In 2015 we started an art studio/gallery, aka This Is It Gallery.


In 2019, our outreach will be expanding to include art programs women and their children in recovery! We look forward to finding new ways to create health and happiness through the arts.
