[ARCHIVED] "Portal" Sculpture Celebration September 17

Portal Sculpture

Elmhurst’s Public Arts Commission is pleased to announce its first addition to public art in Elmhurst. After a thorough review process, the Chicago-based artist Nicole Beck was chosen for her dynamic proposal titled “Portal,” an o-shaped armature with glass that changes colors under certain conditions. The joyful twelve-foot steel and glass sculpture is located in the new Larch Park near downtown Elmhurst.

The City of Elmhurst Public Arts Commission, founded in 2018, was established to implement a Citywide plan for the promotion and thoughtful placement of public art that enhances the business climate and promotes the overall aesthetic appeal of our community

Meet the Artist Event!
