Four famous Warrenville residents will get the Andy Warhol Pop Art treatment and put on display in a mural at Warrenville Public Library this summer. Join us for an unveiling ceremony to reveal the City's Public Pop Art Challenge faces, including a visit from one of the featured faces, at 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, Warrenville Historical Society, and Western DuPage Chamber of Commerce.
Warrenville is one of 20 participating DuPage communities/organizations displaying four famous faces in a Warhol-Style mural to tie into the College of DuPage's exhibition: “Warhol: Featuring Andy Warhol Portfolios: A Life in Pop / Works from the Bank of America” that runs June 3 to September 10.
