The art fair is sponsored by Jerusalem Presbyterian Church in memory of Donna Lexa, who helped disabled and elderly people reach their full potential through her work as an art therapist. Proceeds from the art fair help support non-profit organizations in Waukesha County, and also fund the Jerusalem Presbyterian Church Donna Lexa Art Fair Fine Arts Scholarship, awarded each year to a Kettle Moraine High School senior pursuing further education in art, music or drama.

The Donna Lexa Memorial Art Fair will be held rain or shine, and admission is free. To reach the art fair, take I-94 to Highway 83 and go south 3.5 miles to Main Street.
