The Cleve Carney Museum of Art

The Cleve Carney Museum of Art’s goal is to encourage the growth and understanding of contemporary and modern art through exhibitions and educational programming that cultivates a variety of perspectives.

The Cleve Carney Museum of Art is named in honor of one of Glen Ellyn’s most revered philanthropists, the late Cleve Carney, a contemporary art collector and supporter of the arts.

Following a year of renovations the museum will reopen in June 2021 with an exhibition of works by Frida Kahlo on loan from the Dolores Olmedo Museum. This comprehensive presentation of the life and works of the artist Frida Kahlo will feature 26 original pieces as well as an immersive historical exhibit that provides a framework of the life, circumstances and events that led to Kahlo becoming one of the most important painters of the 20th century and of our time.
