 Albert Krehbiel (1873-1945) was a prolific painter, and was named Illinois State Historical Artist. He was the most decorated American painter ever at the French Academy, and went on to teach at the Art Institute. He won the competition to paint the murals at the Illinois Supreme Court building in 1907, and with the assistance of his wife Dulah, painted these works here in Park Ridge in a barn converted into a studio that they moved behind their house on Touhy near Washington.

Dulah Evans Krehbiel (1875-1951) was also an accomplished painter, as well as graphic designer and photographer. She created illustrations for Harpers Bazaar and many other magazines.  In 1910 she established The Ridge Crafts in Park Ridge, which created illustrated greeting cards.

Some of the original artwork on display will be for available for purchase, as well as posters and books.
