Lovers of history with an artistic bent are invited to bid on original works of art created by McHenry County artists starting Sept. 2.
The McHenry County Historical Society & Museum is marking the second year of its featured exhibit “Art of the Past: Discovering History through McHenry County Artists” with a juried art show titled “This Place Matters: Historic Structures and Landscapes of McHenry County." Artists were invited to use their creativity and ingenuity to paint or draw historically significant buildings, structures and landscapes in McHenry County. MCHS hopes this art show will foster an appreciation for history and create an awareness to preserve these historic structures for future generations.
Half of the proceeds earned from the sale of each piece of artwork will be paid to the artist, with the remaining half benefiting the McHenry County Historical Society, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
