Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

A DIY venture, the Elmhurst Sculpture Garden began life as empty, overgrown lot next to an Olive Garden. Two artists—Yvonne Shortt and Mayuko Fujino—got the idea to turn the location into a home for outdoor art. With the help of local volunteers (including a church group called “Our Savior”), the land was cleared of trash, park benches were added and in 2017, the newly-christened Elmhurst Sculpture Garden opened with the aim of promoting community artists. Though the park currently measures 2,500 square feet, the hope is that it can be expanded to 10,000 square feet. And if you ever get hungry while visiting the place, remember that there's an Olive Garden next door.
