For the first time in its 20 year history, the critically acclaimed publication, New American Paintings, which presents a juried exhibition-in-print with each issue, will jump from the page to the Museum walls. New American Paintings: The 2014 Midwest Edition features 40 artists selected by Elmhurst Art Museum Chief Curator, Staci Boris.
Boris selected from more than 400 works submitted by artists from Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Indiana, Missouri, Ohio and Iowa. The resulting exhibition offers a panoramic view of the disparate ways in which paint is used as a medium in contemporary art practice.
Among the artists showcased are Elijah Burgher, whose large-scale paintings on canvas drop cloths which incorporate ideas from magick (sic) and the occult were shown in the 2014 Whitney Biennial; Lilli Carré, whose experimental animations and ceramics were the subject of a 2014 solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; and Alex Bradley Cohen.

Participate in building a collaborative exhibit with us! Oscar Wilde wrote that, “Memory... is the diary that we all carry about with us.” The Elmhurst Historical Museum invites you to share a memory that tells your personal story. Participants will place an item in a Mason jar that sparks a memory, and then write a few lines about the object’s story on the Memory Jar tag. Bring your own item to display or use provided craft supplies. The jars will be displayed in the first floor museum gallery throughout the month and may be collected to take home at the end of the exhibit.
