The Cleve Carney Museum of Art is named in honor of one of Glen Ellyn’s most revered philanthropists, the late Cleve Carney, a contemporary art collector and supporter of the arts.

Cleve Carney provided a significant legacy gift to establish the Cleve Carney Art Gallery, a one-story, 1,850-square-foot addition on the west side of the McAninch Arts Center. He also donated artworks from his own extensive contemporary art collection, which are prominently displayed throughout the College campus along with other pieces in the College’s Permanent Art Collection. In 2019 the gallery underwent facility upgrades and an expansion that coincided with it’s change to the Cleve Carney Museum of Art.

The Cleve Carney Museum of Art’s goal is to encourage the growth and understanding of contemporary and modern art through exhibitions and educational programming that cultivates a variety of perspectives.
