Albright-inspired Artist-in-Residence

  Thanks to a City of Warrenville Hotel Motel Tax Fund Grant, the Museum is hosting an Albright-inspired Artist-in-Residence who will create original work inspired by one of the three Albrights who once called our building their home.

During the summer of 2015, west suburban artist Chris Hodge was the Albright-inspired artist-in-residency. From June through September 2015, Chris sketched in the Albright art gallery. Over the course of his residency, he created two original pieces in his black-and-white ink style inspired by Ivan Albright.

In 2016, Downers Grove artist, Maggie Capettini, will be present in the Warrenville community painting landscapes and outdoor “plein air” scenes much like Adam Emory Albright. More information and dates available soon. Don’t miss watching Maggie paint our historic town!

What is the Warrenville Historical Society?

The purpose of the Warrenville Historical Society is to bring together those interested in Warrenville's history, and to collect, preserve and display objects and documents that illustrate that history. The Historical Society is a self-supporting not-for-profit organization.The Warrenville Historical Society was organized in 1980 and the Society opened the Warrenville Historical Museum in 1984. Space was provided for the Museum in one room of  the Greek Revival Style Albright Building through the generosity of the City of Warrenville, interest groups, businesses and individuals. The museum now encompasses the entire building. The Museum is supported by the Warrenville Historical Society Memberships, donations, fund raisers, and the Warrenville Museum Guild, as well as a grant from the City of Warrenville.
