“The College of DuPage Warhol Public Pop Art Challenge: 15 Minutes of Fame,” launches June 3 across DuPage County. Warrenville is one of 20 participating DuPage communities/organizations displaying four famous faces in a Warhol-Style mural to tie into COD's Warhol exhibition that runs from June 3 to September 10.
As part of the DuPage Warhol Public Pop Art Challenge this summer, four famous Warrenville residents will be popified and put on display in a mural at Warrenville Public Library. Join us for an unveiling ceremony to reveal the City's Public Pop Art Challenge faces that will be featured at the library all summer, including a visit from one of the featured faces! The ceremony is 10:00 a.m. Saturday, June 3 at the library. Light refreshments will be served. The event will take place outside in front of the library, with the inside meeting room as backup in case of inclement weather.
This is a collaborative effort with the College of DuPage, the City of Warrenville, the Warrenville Historical Society, and the Western DuPage Chamber of Commerce.
