The exhibition will celebrate 10 years of his public art projects across the country, such as the Be Bold. Be Elmhurst mural at Elmhurst University. He will create new large-scale works for the exhibition, including a community art project with over 100 local students and youth groups examining their own identity. Blanco will also lead efforts to produce a new mural with university students.

Revealed at this year’s Art in Wilder Park, our new public new art installation Monsters in Wilder Park, will feature 6 life-sized pieces by artist and animator Dave Pryor based on select monster drawings created by 300 local children.

Coming this summer, Designing Donkey Hodie: From Make-Believe to Someplace Else draws audiences into the unique and creative visual world of the Emmy®-nominated, live-action puppet series. The exhibit will introduce the origins of Donkey Hodie, a character that debuted on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood in the 1960s and has been reimagined for the puppet series today. Attendees can experience the visual development of the series through storyboards, drawings, models, puppets, set pieces, and other props from the show.

Your matched contribution will provide essential funding for our exhibits, educational programming, and staff delivery costs.

Thank you so much for your consideration. Your support ensures the museum is a place where Art for Everyone!
