Programs and Events

Elmhurst Art Museum is both an international destination for Mies van
der Rohe scholars and fans and a regional center where people from
Chicago and the western suburbs learn to see and think differently
through the study of the art, architecture and design of our time
explored in the Museum’s year-round courses, public programs and
school outreach.
