Elmhurst Art Museum installation opening
Join us for the opening of McCormick AfterParti, an immersive and participatory installation in Mies van der Rohe’s historic McCormick House (one of only three single-family homes that Mies designed in the United States) on the Elmhurst Art Museum campus. McCormick AfterParti invites new and unexpected interactions that reference the original 1952 floor plan. Curtains reenact the original wall partitions that were removed when the home was renovated to become part of the museum, and playful, furniture-like interventions invite you to participate in the original domestic functions of each room. For example, lounge on the playful pull-out seating in the living room, challenge your companions to a game on the chess table in the parlor, taste a treat from the shapely countertop in kitchen, or put on a show at the puppet theater in the children’s playroom!
The installation runs January 25–April 12. Join us for an Artist Talk on Saturday, Feburary 1st at 1:30pm.
