The Bloomingdale Park District Museum is delighted to host an exhibit by the Chicago Society of Artists:  A 135-year Legacy Continues.  The show will open October 8 and run through November 5, 2022.  An opening reception featuring live music and refreshments is planned for Sunday, October 16, from 2-4pm.  All are welcome to attend this free event and view the group’s work.   

The Chicago Society of Artists is a non-profit organization established in 1887.  Now well into its second century, CSA is the oldest continuing artist association in the United States.  Early members of the Chicago Society of Artists including John Vanderpoel, Ivan Albright, Frances Badger, and LeRoy Neiman, established and maintained high standards for membership that continue today.  Much of CSA's renown is due to member versatility which includes painters, graphic artists, printmakers, photographers, sculptors, art critics, gallery owners, and art educators.   

After 135 years, CSA continues to play a significant role in the arts by providing opportunities for artists to share their art production and experiences through a continuing series of exhibitions—local, national and international--and also through educational programming.  CSA routinely exhibits at the Anderson Art Center in Kenosha, Lewis University in Romeoville, Gallery Seven in Lockport, and the Vanderpoel Gallery in Beverly.  Member works are also exhibited in major art museums and in private art collections. 

For more information about the group, please visit their website   You can visit the CSA exhibit during the Museum’s regular hours:  Wednesdays, 5-8pm; Thursdays, 12-4pm; and Saturdays, 12-4pm. 

Bloomingdale residents, $2.00 for Non-residents, and $.50 for Seniors.  Donations are always welcome.
