Artist-in-residency Program

Since 2015 the Historical Society has hosted an artist-in-residency program which invites artist-in-residence to create original work inspired by local artists and the three Albright artists, Adam Emory, Ivan and Malvin “Zsissly," who used the Museum as an art studio from 1925-1957.

The Historical Society is currently accepting applications for its next artist-in-residence. Please find the call for art here.

Past artists:

2015: Chris Hodge

2016: Maggie Capettini

2017-2018: Michael Carroll

2018-2019: Nick Gurley

The residency program is funded by a City of Warrenville Motel Tax Grant.
