Elmhurst artists, students build public art block by block
ELMHURST – In December, visitors to downtown Elmhurst may have caught a glimpse of giant holiday packages, but this summer, City Centre patrons will notice 14 new block-shaped art pieces.
“We really wanted to take more of a pop art concept to these,” said Julie La Monica, Elmhurst City Centre’s creative director.
Local area artists Rachel Lechocki, James Riggs, Karen Exiner, Jeune Winchester and Terri Gregory have designed six of the fiberglass “City Centre Blocks” in a modern pop art-inspired style. Traditionally, public art has taken the form of customized benches or more distinct figures such as cars or animals.
