Cleve Carney Museum of Art

Cleve Carney Museum of Art

The Cleve Carney Museum of Art offers year-round visual art exhibitions showcasing art by regional, national and international artists. Our goal is to encourage the growth and understanding of contemporary 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.

Cleve Carney provided a significant legacy gift to establish the Cleve Carney Museum of Art, a one-story, 1,850-square-foot addition on the west side of the McAninch Arts Center. He also donated artworks from his own extensive contemporary art collection, which are prominently displayed throughout the College campus along with other pieces in the College’s Permanent Art Collection.

Prior to the construction of the Cleve Carney Museum of Art in 2014 the College of DuPage’s art gallery was the Gahlberg Gallery. You can access the archive of exhibitions from the Gahlberg Gallery HERE.
