See a canopy of color in Elmhurst!
With over 170 international installations, The Umbrella Sky Project first started out in Portugal, filling public spaces with a vibrant umbrellas art project.
After moving to France, Spain, Japan, and even Norway, The Umbrella Project has found its way to Illinois, residing a short car ride away from the city.
The ultra-colorful installation first began in 2012, creating a vibrant sense of joy and wonder that filled the sky with bright floating umbrellas.
Now, the project is open for viewing at 3 locations throughout Elmhurst.
Visitors and locals alike can view the incredible exhibits at the following locations:
📍 Schiller Court and Schiller and York Sts.
📍Cultural Campus 110 South Cottage Hill
📍North York Stage, 254 N. York St.
The Umbrella Sky Project, which is funded by the Elmhurst City Center and additional sponsors, will be open through August. The City of Elmhurst has added this colorful art piece around town to inspire smiles, joy, and yes, a cool Instagram selfie or two!
Though, after the installation is removed, parts of the original structure will remain, incorporating the umbrellas into future projects and holiday-centric decorations.
