Elmhurst Memory Jar Project

May 1-31
, 2015

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.

2 - August 9, 2015

Calling kids and comics fans of all ages! Elmhurst Historical Museum presents a summer of fun with the Peanuts gang through Pigskin Peanuts, a traveling exhibition from the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in California. View 50 of Schulz's popular football-themed Sunday and daily strips that depict the cartoonist's wry humor through the exploits of the beloved Peanuts characters. Visitors will enjoy viewing classic Peanuts objects and ephemera, dressing up in the team locker room, taking a photo-op on a football trading card, and trying their own hand at “pulling the football” from Charlie Brown.  Organized by the Charles M. Schulz Museum, Santa Rosa, California. Image: ©2015 Peanuts Worldwide LLC
