Museum launches Albright Inspired Artist-in-Residency Program

The Historical Society is happy to announce the launch of an Albright inspired Artist-in-Residency Program. Each year artists who are inspired by one of the three Albright artists, Adam Emory, Ivan or Malvin Albright, will be invited to create an original work of art inspired by the Albrights and their artwork done in Warrenville.

Our 2015 artist will be Chris Hodge, an accomplished artist and art teacher whose work has been shown throughout Chicagoland. Chris was part of the Historical Society’s 2012 “Warrenville Inspired” art show. Chris’ work will be on display at the Historical Museum & Art Gallery and in selected places in the community beginning June 10th. Visitors to the Museum can also watch Chris draw on these selected days in June, July, and August from 1:00-4:00p.m.: Wednesday, June 10th; Wednesday, June 17th; Wednesday, June 24th; Wednesday, July 8th; Wednesday, July 15th; Sunday, July 26th; Sunday, August 2nd; Wednesday, August 5th; and Wednesday, August 12th.  Chris will also give an artist statement at our Monday, September 14th Annual Meeting prior to our Director, Sara, giving a presentation about the Albrights and their time in Warrenville.

What is the Warrenville Historical Society?

The purpose of the Warrenville Historical Society is to bring together those interested in Warrenville's history, and to collect, preserve and display objects and documents that illustrate that history. The Historical Society is a self-supporting not-for-profit organization.The Warrenville Historical Society was organized in 1980 and the Society opened the Warrenville Historical Museum in 1984. Space was provided for the Museum in one room of  the Greek Revival Style Albright Building through the generosity of the City of Warrenville, interest groups, businesses and individuals. The museum now encompasses the entire building. The Museum is supported by the Warrenville Historical Society Memberships, donations, fund raisers, and the Warrenville Museum Guild, as well as a grant from the City of Warrenville.
