In the past 40 years, Cedarhurst has grown into a cultural mecca spread over 90 acres. The original two-room museum has expanded into a 33,000-square-foot cultural center with four galleries (one of which exhibits works from the Mitchell collection), an interactive family learning center, and acoustically sound performance hall. The campus is also home to the Shrode Art Center, which includes a gallery, classrooms, and studio space; the historic Mitchell Home and Schweinfurth House, used for special events and meetings; and the Goldman-Kuenz Sculpture Park, which boasts one of the finest outdoor contemporary sculpture collections in the U.S. The Mitchells' legacy is one to be celebrated and enjoyed by all who visit southern Illinois.

  • The variety of vendors & addition of so many new ones, made this a very exciting visit for my husband & myself. I shopped for Christmas gifts for my family as well as a couple of pieces for myself. My husband enjoyed the gorgeous weather, music & food & beverage offers. Thank you to all the folks at Cedarhurst who worked very hard to make this event a success! Julie & Richard of Marion
  • I always go to see the pewter Smiths and the scrimshaw booth. A beautiful day for the art fair. Lots of things to look at.
