New original exhibit! Take a nostalgic trip to the glory days of roller skating to learn about the "rink rats"—the regulars at the legendary skating venues with names like The Elm, Arcadia, Riverview, Lombard, The Savoy, and others in the “Golden Era” of roller skating. Hear first-person accounts from skaters and view images and eclectic artifacts, from skating jackets and gear to competition medals, posters, and memorabilia. Inspired by the book by author and skater Tom Russo.

Artist Jeanine Coupe Ryding is best known for her richly layered, inventive, and often monumental, woodcut prints. Her forms and color record her observations of nature and of daily life, described in her expressive gestural cutting into the wood block plate. Elmhurst College will present “Coda for the Day,” an exhibition of her work, beginning on Aug 15. Her exhibition comprises a selection of 15 large-scale relief prints, 11 artist books and eight collages from the last 10 years. The exhibition is curated by Doug Stapleton, associate curator of art at the Illinois State Museum. “I am thrilled to host this exhibition of Jeanine Coupe Ryding’s work curated by Doug Stapleton,” said Suellen Rocca, curator and director of exhibits at Elmhurst Collee. “Both the curator and artist will discuss the exhibition at the public reception, which should provide great insight into the work.” Ryding's prints and artist books are in museum and private collections throughout the U.S., Europe and Japan.

"The Diary of Anne Frank" tells the true story of two Jewish families in Amsterdam, hiding from the Nazis during World War Two. Anne's diary is one of the most widely read books ever and has now been translated into over 70 languages. Kesselman's recent adaptation of the Diary was hailed by The New York Times: "Undeniably moving. It shatters the heart," and Time Magazine raved: "One of the year's ten best."
