Hi, I’m Alex. Welcome to my non-profit organization. We promote access to the arts for people with disabilities through an integrated arts community model. We provide special experiences to premier Broadway shows, and are moving to develop workshops and performance opportunities in art, music and theater where individuals with disabilities are able to shine. Learn more about the history of Alex Haunty’s Theater And Arts Fund, Inc. (AHTAFI).
Art Commission for American Family Children's Hospital
Alex revealed six new paintings in October 2016 as part of a commission he did for the American Family Children's Hospital called Paintings of Love to Bring Hope and Healing, expressing his heart for others to feel loved, be encouraged, be healed and to have hope. Read more.
A portion of all proceeds from commissions go to AHTAFI.
Alex loves to do commissions and would be happy to talkt with you about a possible painting.

Help us take artists with disabilities to see THE LION KING
In Spring 2023, AHTAFI is taking artists and friends with disabilities to see The Lion King! Join the fun in helping us. "Seeing a show live helps people with disabilities grow as individuals and learn new skills.The excitement of going to the theater encourages people to dream and think outside the box. Seeing a show with AHTAFI helps all of us feel special and included," says Alex Haunty, Founder and Ex Officio Board Member of AHTAFI.
Hometown Hero Award
Alex was awarded the 2017 Hometown Hero Award by the Wisconsin State Assembly on September 14, 2017. Dianne Hesselbein nominated Alex saying "Alex loves painting and creating wonderful pieces of original art. As an artist he has become a hero in our community by creating opportunities for others to enjoy the arts as well." Listen to Alex's speech.
John Stofflets gave Alex the NBC-15 January 2017 Making a Difference Award during the January 29, 2017 reception at the Overture Center for the Arts after The Phantom of the Opera performance. What an honor! See the NBC15 video.
A Night of Surprises
At a special celebration in May 2018, Alex surprised retiring Overture Center President and CEO Ted Dedee with a special gift, thanking Mr. Dedee for all his support as an artist.
Mr. Dedee then surprised Alex by presenting him the"Star of Touring Broadway," for sharing his love of the arts. This is a national award offered by the Broadway League to honor those who have supported and enriched the Broadway Series in their hometowns. See the video story on NBC15
