The Goethe-Institut’s Advent Calendar is back! In 2020 we tell the story of the residents of a street called "Goetheweg" who try to save their community centre in the run-up to Christmas. How do they go about it? Find out in our Christmas tale and win German Online Trainings!
*The exhibiton can be viewed from the street and parking lot. Please contact the Elmhurst Art Museum for more details*
In collaboration with friend and artist Ayanah Moor, professor of print-media at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Monument Lab-fellow Alisha B. Wormsley created an exhibition that aims to inform us and support the work of mothers fighting for the future of Black housing. This print work is installed in the McCormick House at the Elmhurst Art Museum. Concurrent with the exhibition, the Elmhurst Art Museum distributes art kits that instruct and inspire, creating kites, signs and stickers as a means of activism for change in America. These art kits are available on a limited basis during museum hours only.
Join us for our virtual international Winterfest brought to you by the Goethe-Institutes in Canada, the US and Mexico on December 4th and December 5th.
