Museum launches Albright Inspired Artist-in-Residency Program

The Historical Society is happy to announce the launch of an Albright inspired Artist-in-Residency Program. Each year artists who are inspired by one of the three Albright artists, Adam Emory, Ivan or Malvin Albright, will be invited to create an original work of art inspired by the Albrights and their artwork done in Warrenville.

Our 2015 artist will be Chris Hodge, an accomplished artist and art teacher whose work has been shown throughout Chicagoland. Chris was part of the Historical Society’s 2012 “Warrenville Inspired” art show. Chris’ work will be on display at the Historical Museum & Art Gallery and in selected places in the community beginning June 10th. Visitors to the Museum can also watch Chris draw on these selected days in June, July, and August from 1:00-4:00p.m.: Wednesday, June 10th; Wednesday, June 17th; Wednesday, June 24th; Wednesday, July 8th; Wednesday, July 15th; Sunday, July 26th; Sunday, August 2nd; Wednesday, August 5th; and Wednesday, August 12th.  Chris will also give an artist statement at our Monday, September 14th Annual Meeting prior to our Director, Sara, giving a presentation about the Albrights and their time in Warrenville.
