A sneek peak at coming attractions…

The museum is gearing up for new and exciting events coming very soon! We say goodbye to the “Is It Fresh?” truck farming exhibit next month but the vacated space will house THREE NEW EXHIBITS starting in December.  I don’t want to give too much away too early (after all, it wouldn’t be a sneak peek if I did) but I can say that these events are going to be big!

The first will be the annual painting exhibit. We can’t wait to see what the park district’s class dreams up this year. Even though the opening event will be on a Bears game day, rumor has it that Whole Foods may cater the opening to tempt sports lovers out of the house.

The second exhibit goes up shortly after. All I will hint at for now is that we have never done anything like this before, it involves a live theater production collaboration, and it has the potential to be a neat unique experience.

Last but not least, we are planning an exhibit in collaboration with the Chicago Wood Turners Club, a local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners.  It will look at the evolution of wood as a functional building material to art. It will also feature pieces made by the Chicago Wood Turners Club and perhaps wood turning demonstrations.

Is your interest sufficiently piqued? Stay tuned!
