The Villa Park Historical Museum is host to the first “Art Show at the Museum Pavilion - Linking Art & Community”, Saturday, May 19, 2018 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. This is a one day outdoor art show for the whole family with the work of over thirty-five local artists for sale, face painting for adults and children, and refreshments from food vendors will round out the event. Admission is free, however, there is a fee for face painting and refreshments.
This is an opportunity to purchase unique, one of a kind art including jewelry, photography, mixed media, and oil, acrylic and water color paintings inside and outside, at the Villa Park Historical Museum. Sharon Tinker, President of Studios630, hopes “that this collaborative opportunity will raise community awareness of the incredible local talent that we have here in the western suburbs.” Artists from Villa Park, Lombard, Elmhurst, Naperville and Willowbrook will display and sell their original artwork. This event is sponsored by Villa Park Historical Society, Village of Villa Park, Studios630, Park Art Center, Lombard Arts Coalition and the Elmhurst Art Guild. Parking is available in the Museum lot, along Park Blvd., and at the Church parking lot located at 250 S. Villa Ave.
The Villa Park Historical Museum, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, is located in the 1929 Chicago, Aurora & Elgin electric train line station that originally served the community as the Villa Avenue stop until 1957. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986, and since 2009, has served as the Villa Park Visitor Center, providing business information, Prairie Path Maps, and guides to local restaurants and shopping.
