-

Naper Settlement in collaboration with the Naperville Art League will present a new exhibit featuring more than 35 works of art by league members, titled “Pride, Honor, Tradition.”

Now on view at Naper Settlement through April 5, the exhibit features 20 local artists’ paintings, drawings, photographs, and more based on the themes of heroism, sacrifice, family, and strength to honor the 150th anniversary of the Naperville Fire Department.

The artwork in the first museum gallery is inspired by Naperville and the Naperville Fire Department’s 150th anniversary, while the second gallery contains artwork based on a variety of topics. “Pride, Honor, Tradition” kicks off Naper Settlement’s year-long celebration of the Naperville Fire Department’s 150th anniversary.

In May, the museum will open the exhibit “A Strong Back and a Strong Mind: 150 Years of the Naperville Fire Department.” The exhibit will highlight the evolution of the Naperville Fire Department through the lens of the diverse set of skills, abilities, and equipment that the department utilizes in service to the community.

“The artists featured in this exhibit have created some truly wonderful pieces, and they enliven our galleries with their works,” said Dina Spoerl, exhibits team leader at Naper Settlement. “It has been a pleasure collaborating once again with the Naperville Art League and getting to host unique art pieces that allows local artists to showcase their pieces to museum visitors.”

The Naperville Fine Art Center & Gallery/Naperville Art League, founded in 1961, is a nonprofit organization created to support and sustain development and diversity of all forms of art. Through art instruction, programs, workshops, and exhibits, the Naperville Art League dedicates itself to providing art education as well as raising awareness and appreciation of the arts for the cultural enhancement of the community.

“Pride, Honor, Tradition” is included in general museum admission. For more information about the exhibit and to purchase admission tickets, visit NaperSettlement.org/Exhibits.
