Art at the Albright Building
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.

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