Annual Fund 2016

Thank you for being a friend of Elmhurst Art Museum

2014-15 was a a great year! We:
  • shared our Museum with hundreds of school children through the new ‘Art is for Everyone’ program.
  • donated 700 Memberships---one for every family served by the Elmhurst-Yorkfield Food Pantry and the United Community Concerns Association
  • offered free admission to every Elmhurst Public Library user for one month
  • shared the entire Mies van der Rohe McCormick House with the public for the first time since the Museum opened in 1997
  • began a comprehensive restoration plan for the Mies House to be better caretakers of this historically significant building
  • balanced our budget by reducing operating expenses 36%
  • received a prestigious award from the National Endowment for the Arts, placing us among some of the best cultural institutions in the nation
  • hosted a lunch for Chairman Jane Chu of the National Endowment for the Arts at the Museum. (She said we are “knocking it out of the park!”)
  • received great press in publications ranging from the Chicago Tribune to Art in America to Crain’s Business Week.

A gift of $100 or whatever amount feels right to you will help us share our programs in 2016. Make your gift online now by clicking the button below.
