Welcome Shelly Valdiserri to the Gracik Makinney Group!

by Thomas Makinney

Gracik Makinney Group is thrilled to announce Shelly Valdiserri as our newest realtor team member.

Shelly knows firsthand the challenges and rewards of finding a perfect home and selling a home quickly. She has been in the interior design field for the past 15 years and brings her extensive experience to the real estate field, whether that is staging your home to show off its best assets or helping you see the possibilities and potential of homes you are viewing.

Her experience has given her insight on what sellers can do to get top dollar for their home to encourage a timely sale. Likewise, she can advise buyers about possibilities for making a house a home that works for them along with anticipated pricing. Did we mention she also has experience working in marketing and advertising?

Shelly literally grew up immersed in the housing industry. Her father was a builder and her mother a successful realtor, and she grew up learning the nuances of building homes, remodeling, decorating, and buying properties.

She earns praise from her clients for her energy, enthusiasm, commitment, and resourcefulness. She is known for being proactive and professional and having a positive attitude—a true asset in this business!

Shelly is a long-time resident of the western suburbs. She and her husband raised their two daughters in Elmhurst. They have also lived in Chicago, Hinsdale, Naperville, and Glen Ellyn. She definitely has the insight and knowledge of the area!

Please join us in welcoming Shelly! You can reach out to her (or any of us!) through our website,www.gmregroup.com or contact her directly at (630) 886-8039.

The arts will officially have a permanent home in Elmhurst! The Elmhurst Center for the Performing Arts announced that the building at 109–119 W. First St. (between Addison and York) will be the location for its proposed 50,000 square foot performing arts center.

Not only will the performing arts center be located directly across from the Metra train station, the building will also be right in the middle of Elmhurst’s vibrant downtown scene—near restaurants, shopping, wine bars, and pubs.

Since 2016, the ECPA board has been searching for the perfect location that would provide easy access via public transportation and access to the central downtown area. The center will offer a permanent home for theater, music, dance, and comedy performances, both local and regional/traveling, as well as space for classes and meetings.

The board is now working on securing funding for the $30 million building. The hope is that funds can be raised through a capital campaign, grants, and naming rights, among other methods. Official plans cannot begin until those funds are secured, meaning the tenants currently occupying the location will not be impacted for three to five years.

The board is continuing to hold public meetings for residents to learn more about getting involved and what the center will bring to the community. So far, support and enthusiasm from residents continue to pour in.

For more information and to see a virtual rendering of the Elmhurst Center for the Performing Arts, visit www.ecpa-elmhurst.org.

Here at Gracik Makinney, we’re thrilled at the progress being made. Our city has long been a proponent of the arts, with four museums, a college, and a world-class library.

Elmhurst Art Museum Hosts Only U.S. Stop for Bauhaus Tour

by Thomas Makinney

The Elmhurst Art Museum has reason to toot its horn. Their current exhibition, The Whole World a Bauhaus, which opened last week after a transportation delay, is the only U.S. stop on its international tour.

2019 is the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus movement, an integrated approach to the art, crafts, and technology. Founded in Germany, it lasted only 14 years due to the Nazi occupation, but the effects are still being felt. The tenants of Bauhaus include the feeling that aesthetic design elements should be a part of everyday objects, from refrigerators to coffee tables.

The EAM has specific ties to the Bauhaus movement, as McCormick House architect Mies van der Rohe was the last director of the school before it closed, leaving its ideals spread across the world. The McCormick House, adjacent to the movement, is one of only three van der Rohe-designed homes in the U.S.

The exhibit explores the influence of Bauhaus through photographs, design pieces, and documents and encourages people to rethink and reimagine the objects around them. There will be events throughout March and April exploring the influence of Bauhaus, such as tours of the McCormick House outlining the Bauhaus influence in the design, as well as lectures and workshops.

This year’s annual museum annual fundraiser is themed after the exhibition. “Soiree 2019: Bauhaus 100” will be held on Sat. April 27 at the museum. The event will include cocktails, a multi-course dinner, entertainment, and live and silent auctions, including Bauhaus artwork by new and established artists. During the evening, the museum will unveil “Parallel Perspectives,”,a light and color installation in the McCormick House.

The exhibit is open through April 20. More information about the exhibition and the soiree can be found at the museum’s website, www. Elmhurstartmuseum.org.

Having a world-class museum in our city is one of the many ways that Elmhurst is a unique and vibrant place to live. To find out more, call us at (630) 441-5570 or reach out through our website, www.gmregroup.com.
