A Palette for Preservation: Paintings by Bonnie Casey
Inspired by the ever-changing landscape of Elk Grove Village and the surrounding area, artist and former resident, Bonnie Casey, painted a number of rural homesteads during the 1970s as a final record of their existence. Images and historic items from associated properties will be displayed alongside a series of Casey's original paintings to revive these locations once more. Artwork by current Elk Grove Artist Association members will be featured throughout the museum's farmhouse to complement the theme of local preservation. Exhibit visitors are eligible for entry into a monthly raffle drawing for a chance to win a $100 gift card to Blick Art Materials.
This exhibit is proudly supported by Blick Arts Materials (500 E. Golf Road in Schaumburg) and Elk Grove Historical Society members.
