Warhol Pop-Art Challenge

Lombard participated in the DuPage Warhol Pop-Art Challenge and identified four notable faces from Lombard, which were transformed into bright and colorful Warhol-style pop art - as shown below. Lombard's pop art pieces will soon be placed on display at 109. S Main St for public viewing and can also be found inside the Sheldon Peck Homestead at 355 E Parkside Ave and the Lombard Historical Society Carriage House at 23 W Maple St.
