The Elmhurst Art Museum showcases the works of contemporary and traditional artists from Chicago and around the world and specializes in late 20th Century American art. The museum's cornerstone is McCormick House, a white, steel and glass residence designed by architect Mies van der Rohe. The museum houses five galleries, one permanently devoted to exhibiting works by members of the Elmhurst Artists' Guild. Generally, three or four additional exhibits are on display as well. Although the museum highlights a variety of artists and media, its primary focus is contemporary. Group tours are available by reservation.
