Elmhurst Art Museum
Exhibiting late 20th and early 21st Century American and Contemporary Art, EAM offers exhibitions ranging from national touring works to local emerging and mid-career Chicago and Illinois artists. The AIA award winning building was designed around McCormick House, one of only three Ludwig Mies van der Rohe designed residences. The Mission of Elmhurst Art Museum is to provide the people of Elmhurst and surrounding communities with a center for exploring the visual arts of our time. The museum strives to produce a welcoming atmosphere, where art can be viewed, studied, created and appreciated. The architecturally significant facility enriches the lives of visitors by broadening their knowledge of art and design, increasing the understanding of the visual arts, and sparking the development of individual creative talent. Fifteen miles west of Chicago and adjacent to the Metra West train line, the Museum offers public tours, programs, guest lectures, and art classes.
