As the first outdoor festival in the region each year, Art in Wilder Park is a highly anticipated Spring event in the western suburbs. In 2022, the event was voted one of the Best in the West, featured in numerous press outlets, and attracted nearly half of its visitors from outside Elmhurst. For 2023, Elmhurst Art Museum has set their sights on an even larger, more inclusive, and accessible event for the whole family. Programming will feature over 125 booths of one-of-a-kind art, food vendors, and hands-on kid’s activities.
Discoverable on the weekend of the 26th Annual Art in Wilder Park will be a newly commissioned public art installation of life-sized superhero sculptures by area artists and youth groups. This installation will be a bold preview of our summer show, Marvelocity, featuring the iconic work of comics legend Alex Ross.
