About Us

Mission

The Elmhurst Art Museum, established and granted 501©(3) status in 1997, is dedicated to the development of rotating contemporary art exhibitions by regional artists, ongoing educational programs that are available at no cost to interested groups, schools and individuals, and the celebration and preservation of a rare single-family home designed by Mies van der Rohe. The galleries, Education Center, and the Mies House, are complementary, working together to enrich thousands of lives annually by deepening knowledge of art, architecture and design, increasing understanding of the relevance of visual art in our times, and sparking the development of individual creativity through innovative programming.
