The Elmhurst Artists' Guild, one of the oldest and foremost guilds in Chicago's western suburbs, was founded in 1946 by 11 artists from the Elmhurst community.
The Guild currently has over 150 members with varied styles and abilities. Through our programs, we strive to empower not only the creator of a work of art but also the audience or consumer as a way to enhance and enrich the world around us. We are dedicated to creating quality arts programming that provides self-exploration, skill development, and aesthetic awareness.
The Elmhurst Art Museum is the Guild home. The museum's cornerstone is McCormick House, designed by architect Mies van der Rohe. The museum houses five galleries, one permanently devoted to exhibiting works by members of the Elmhurst Artists' Guild.
The mission of the Elmhurst Artists' Guild continues as "the charitable and not-for-profit functions of shows and exhibitions, workshops, lectures, classes and other similar activities which further the purpose of encouraging, promoting, advancing, and assisting art education and instruction, and the advancement of and development of the arts."
