DESCRIPTION

As a premier regional arts institution, Cedarhurst presents visual and performing arts programs for the public year-round on a 90-acre estate nestled in southern Illinois. The museum’s Permanent Collection contains over 400 art works and decorative objects including paintings by Samuel Bellows, Mary Cassatt, Thomas Eakins, William Glackens, George Luks and Maurice Prendergast. Cedarhurst offers exhibitions in three galleries, large-scale sculpture in Cedarhurst Sculpture Park, chamber music, the annual Cedarhurst Craft Fair and numerous educational programs.

Permanent Collection

John R. and Eleanor R. Mitchell were active collectors for more than four decades and acquired a significant collection of late 19th and early 20th century American paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts.

Kuenz Sculpture Park

In 1992, a newly formed sculpture committee developed a plan for the establishment of a sculpture park amid 90 acres of meadows and woods. Kuenz Sculpture Park, the museum's open-air gallery, was developed so that visitors may experience art in a natural setting.

Main Gallery

Cedarhurst presents a variety of art exhibitions featuring regional, national and international artists in the Main Gallery. Interpretive programs such as lectures, which enable visitors to more fully experience the exhibits, are also held in the Main Gallery.

Beal Grand Corridor Gallery

The Lawrence J. Beal Family Grand Corridor gallery was added during the $8 million dollar expansion of the Mitchell Museum Building and opened in November 2008. Visitors to Cedarhurst can experience a variety of temporary exhibits throughout the year in the Beal Grand Corridor Gallery.
