September 20, 2019 | by the Office of Marketing and Communications

The popular Alumni Art Exhibition, which opens during Elmhurst College’s Homecoming Weekend, features new works by alumni from the College’s Department of Art.

Generations of art graduates display work in a wide variety of media, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and graphic design.

“The Alumni Exhibition is always a special show,” said Suellen Rocca, curator and director of exhibitions for the College. “This is the 15th year of the exhibition, and the work represents many decades of graduates. It is exciting each year to see what our alumni are doing.”

The 15th Annual Alumni Art Exhibition begins on Saturday, Oct. 5, and ends on Saturday, Oct. 19 in the Barbara A. Kieft Accelerator ArtSpace. Built around a 20-foot-high particle accelerator dating back to the 1950s, the Accelerator ArtSpace is open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from noon to 4:00 p.m. A public reception for the artists will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5. Admission is free to the exhibition and reception, and the public is invited.

The Alumni Exhibition is one of about a dozen art shows that Elmhurst College hosts each academic year in two campus venues. In addition, the College’s A.C. Buehler Library permanently houses the College’s unparalleled collection of Chicago Imagist and Abstractionist Art, which explores the vibrant, often outrageous, yet precisely crafted works of Chicago artists between 1950 and the present.
