Hanover Park unveiling Warhol-inspired mural of notable people from village
The village of Hanover Park is joining the celebration of the "WARHOL" exhibition that opened last week at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn in a couple of ways this summer.
First will be the unveiling of Hanover Park's entry in the exhibit's DuPage Pop Art Challenge, with a mural of four notable people from the village done in an Andy Warhol-inspired portrait style.
Mayor Rod Craig will conduct the unveiling at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 27, at Ontarioville Plaza, 1900 Ontarioville Road.
Large murals of these prominent individuals then will be displayed at the village hall, 2121 W. Lake St.
A number of DuPage communities already have released their entries in the challenge. These include Addison, Aurora, Bartlett, Bloomingdale, Carol Stream, Glen Ellyn, Glendale Heights, Lisle, Lombard, Naperville, Roselle, Warrenville, West Chicago, Westmont, Wheaton, Winfield and Woodridge, as well as the Glen Ellyn Public Library.
The portraits, along with general information and ticket availability, can be found at the "WARHOL" exhibition website, Warhol2023.org.
Later in the summer, Hanover Park's annual Corks & Crafts festival on Saturday, Aug. 19, at Ontarioville Park will be branded with a Warhol theme this year. The event features a variety of wine and craft beer, arts and crafts, music and food.
This summer's Warhol tie-ins are based around the 11,000-square-foot exhibition of the renowned artist's life and work that will run through Sept. 10 at the Cleve Carney Museum of Art and the McAninch Arts Center at the College of DuPage, 425 Fawell Blvd. in Glen Ellyn.
Tickets start at $25, with additional programming free with proof of ticket purchase.
