Saturday, Jun 15th, 2024
6:00 PM–9:00 PM
Free for kids who submitted monsters + one guest, Museum admission required for others

Inspired by featured exhibition Monsters in Wilder Park: A Kid-Powered Art Show, join artist Dave Pryor and explore the world of monster creation.

During your visit, you will be able to view and celebrate all monster drawings submitted by over 300 school-aged children for the public art installation. Then, create your own unique monster through a hands-on art making activity.

Over 300 kids within the community dreamt up and submitted their own monster drawings. Inspired by these unique sketches, Elmhurst-based artist and illustrator Dave Pryor will reimagine them as larger than life artworks on view in Wilder Park. Learn more about the artist and public art installation.
