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.

 

School boundary changes begin to take shape

by Thomas Makinney


Hawthorne Elementary School


Jackson Elementary School

With the passage of November’s bond referendum, plans are now getting underway for upcoming changes in District 205. First up is the redrawing of three school boundaries.

Under the proposed new boundary changes, some students from areas now districted to Hawthorne and Jackson Elementary Schools will be attending Edison School. The district is trying to equalize student populations among all the schools, particularly as plans get underway for an all-day kindergarten option.

Current plans call for Jackson School to house a district-wide all-day kindergarten program; however, planning for that program can’t begin until space gets freed up. Superintendent David Moyer alluded to a potential rollout plan for the kindergarten program with the possibility of a lottery system if the demand exceeds space availability.

The proposed boundaries would affect Hawthorne students east of Kenmore Ave. who would be transferred to Edison, while families living east of York Rd. and west of Kenmore Ave. would have the option of sending their children to either Hawthorne or Edison.

Students living south of Butterfield Road on either side of Harrison St. would no longer be bussed to Jackson but would transfer to Edison. Those students would be able to choose between Bryan and Sandburg Middle Schools.

It’s important to note that anyone currently living in these impacted areas would have the choice between existing boundaries or the new ones. The new boundaries would only be mandated for people purchasing a home after June 1, 2022.

The district hopes to have a complete proposal to present to the school board before the March 18 meeting.

Other referendum developments in progress include the complete rebuilding of Field and Lincoln Elementary Schools, the two oldest schools in the district.

The $168.5 million bond issue passed last November after a three-year process of research, community input, and investigation. All changes are being made as part of the district’s master facilities plan.

Elmhurst schools are among the best in the state and the country, and they are a major reason why people move to and stay in our city. We’re proud of the loyalty and commitment residents give to improving education.
