This fall, head to the Elmhurst Art Museum, a suburban gem that provides visitors with a wide scope of art exhibits, events, and even classes, that don’t require a trip into the city. With convenient access from two major interstates, Elmhurst is easily accessible no matter where you’re traveling from.


Right now, the art museum is showcasing a unique exhibit called BLOW UP: Inflatable Contemporary Art, which features artists’ creations where air is used as the medium. The artists have manipulated the scale, color, and playful qualities of the balloons to create a wide variety of work that speak to topics such as war, identity and materialism.  It's intriguing and will make you think about art in a new way, but most of all, it's fun!

This exhibit will naturally appeal to children, but it’s also going to speak to the art lover in your family. This traveling exhibit is open until the end of November, so as the weather cools off, head up, up and away to check this out!
