Elmhurst Art Museum
With a heavy heart we share news about the passing of Suellen Rocca (1943-2020), a close collaborator and friend of the museum. The Elmhurst College curator was part of the widely recognized exhibition group the 'Hairy Who'. In 2018 we honored her with an award that read, "in grateful appreciation for your outstanding service as an artist, curator, educator, and creative leader in the western suburbs."
