The Elmhurst Art Museum has hit its stride with Staci Boris guiding the curation and programing. The current exhibition, Spotlight, hosts a number of Chicago artists for whom light is the content and the medium of their art.

I was particularly impressed with Monika Wulfers (above) and Jeroen Nelemans's elegant and humorous wall laserlight piece made from laser level elements. Paola Cabal, Dana Carter, Spencer Finch, Dana Major, Daniel Miller, Jason Peot, Morgan Sims and Jan Tichy also have strong contributions.

I enjoyed the exhibit, the installation, and the local focus. Solid and resourceful, it was well worth the short field trip.
