Find Frida Scavenger Hunt
June 3 - June 30
2021 is a big year for art in Glen Ellyn and DuPage County.
From June-September, College of DuPage, in partnership with the McAninch Arts Center and Cleve Carney Art Gallery, have announced an exhibition of the largest private collection of works by Frida Kahlo coming to the Glen Ellyn campus.
The 26-piece collection, on loan from the Museo Dolores Olmedo, features an array of sketches and paintings spanning the career of Kahlo, who is considered one of Mexico’s greatest artists.
Many tourists are expected to come to Glen Ellyn to view the exhibit, and we are excited to add to the experience by inviting the kids from all over to participate in our very own Find Frida Scavenger Hunt!
20 Participating businesses are hiding Frida dolls within their shops!
Your mission is to find them, get your map validated, all while exploring Downtown Glen Ellyn!
The hunt begins June 1, 2021. Grab the kids and pick up a map at The Bookstore of Glen Ellyn. Participation is FREE! You have the entire month find all 20 dolls!
Turn in the completed card before July 3 at the Glen Ellyn Public Library to be entered to win great prizes! Also, join the library for a week-long drop-in celebration June 21-27! Color artwork, take a Frida selfie, grab a take home craft kit and enjoy a Frida inspired dish at The Café.
