Hyelin Park

Thursday, July 18-Tuesday, September 10

Hyelin Park, a Korean artist based in the US, draws inspiration from her childhood memories and experiences as a mother and immigrant. She blends familiar objects like ceramics, flowers, and animals with daily narratives using a variety of media. Park's art aims to evoke intricate sympathy and narrative healing, particularly for women, inviting viewers to reconnect with their own emotions and memories. Through her work, she encourages reflection on the beauty of everyday life, celebrating the transformative power of creativity to find meaning in the mundane.

The Gift of Art

The Friends of the Glenview Library have commissioned artwork for designated Library locations and have donated from their own collections. When you enter the Library from the underground garage, take notice of Field Scene. This colorful painting by David W. Voros was commissioned in 1986 to hang behind the Circulation Desk in the old Library. In the Community Room, the Navajo rug and two Native American portraits were gifts from the Louann Van Zelst family. The next time you attend a Library program, make sure to view these stunning works.
