Elgin’s Cultural Gem: The Sears Art Gallery at Elgin Academy

October 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Beaux Arts-style Sears Gallery opened in 1924 as a donation from Judge Nathaniel and Laura Sears. It was Elgin’s first art museum and recital hall, and a significant part of Elgin Academy’s campus. Ann Chipman will present a fascinating history of the building, the art collection, and a look at Elgin’s cultural life in the years after the World War II. Please note: This event is being held at the Main Branch of the Gail Borden Public Library – NOT at the museum. You can register for the event by clicking here.
