Temporary Exhibition

History Reimagined – A collaboration between the Elk Grove Historical Museum and the Elk Grove Village Artist’s Association

Experience history through a new lens by viewing a brand new collection of paintings created by members of the Elk Grove Village Artist’s Association. Inspired by historic photographs from the Museum’s own collection, these pieces of art will add new perspective to visitors’ views of Elk Grove’s past, and hopefully create a spark of creativity among viewers of the exhibition.

Mission:
The Elk Grove Historical Museum actively partners with the community to collect and preserve local history that is disseminated through relevant exhibits and education programs.

Vision:
The Elk Grove Historical Museum will be valued by the community by building lifelong connections through shared experiences.
