As a Smithsonian Affiliate, the Lizzadro Museum is able to co-curate special exhibits from the Smithsonian collections. The Modern Designer Jewelry exhibit is on loan from the gem vault of the National Museum of Natural History. Russell Feather, the Smithsonian’s gem curator and Dorothy Asher, Lizzadro Museum’s Director worked together to create this exhibit. The display features eleven pieces from the Smithsonian gem collection, created by award-winning American jewelry designers from the 1960s to 2010. Each piece has a description.

Heidi Norton’s work presents nature in a suspended state. This summer, Norton is producing a multi-part installation consisting of custom-made window inserts, sculptural objects, interactive hot houses and living plants. Inspired by Elmhurst Art Museum’s history and park setting, its light-filled, glass-enclosed architecture and its relationship to modernism, Norton’s project will fill Hostetler Gallery, Mies van der Rohe’s McCormick House and the corridor that links these two prominent and transparent spaces. As EAM’s second artist-in-residence, Norton is developing several public programs focused on ecology, gardening and photography and designing a Field Guide to Elmhurst, a takeaway map and self-guided tour that locates and describes places, objects and histories related to her exhibition.

On display July 1 thru September 28, 2014 - In the lower level's Visiting Artist case, see the work of Illinois artist Randy Grant. His work focuses on diorama-like illuminated collages created with carved objects, rocks, minerals, and fossils. As he describes,"My inspiration comes from photographing mountains, caves, undersea, and the macro world at large, and then finding nature's miniature complement in the hopes that these timeless keepsakes, which I put together will further spotlight the beauty of the planet."

Major League Baseball in the City of Chicago is divided geographically by only ten miles, but the distance between their fan bases is far greater. In its new summer exhibit, EHM hits it out of the park highlighting the longtime rivalry between the fans of these two storied teams. This cultural history exposé covers all the bases of the crosstown rivalry to examine concepts of loyalty and fandom through videos of each team’s colorful supporters; interviews with former players, sports journalists and broadcasters; and fan souvenirs and ephemera. Unlike the actual game of baseball, there are no rain-outs with this exhibit, but catch it while you can!
