Talented High School Artists To Have Works Showcased At City Hall

The Aurora Public Art Commission will unveil its new “Art at City Hall” exhibit featuring the artistic talents from students at five Aurora high schools.

The free display is posted on all five floors of City Hall, 44 E. Downer Place, and will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, Feb. 15 to Oct. 11.  The walls of City Hall will be adorned with more than 100 paintings, drawings, photographs, prints and digital works from students at Aurora Christian, East Aurora, Marmion Academy, Rosary and West Aurora high schools. 

The “Art at City Hall’ series was established in 2005 by Mayor Tom Weisner to create a more dynamic environment in Aurora’s City Hall. 

The Aurora Public Art Commission, a civic organization dedicated to the preservation of public art in all of its forms, is seeking two-dimensional works in all mediums for this ongoing series.  Artists who are interested in participating may send a CD of 10 to 15 works, a resume and self-addressed stamped envelope to the Aurora Public Art Commission, Art In City Hall, 44. E. Downer Place, Aurora, IL 60507.
