Les vendanges by François Boucher
In addition to providing the founding gift for Krannert Art Museum, Ellnora D. Krannert and Herman Krannert donated many artworks, including this painting, to this institution recognized for both its collections and its activities that invite the public to learn more about other cultures and the creative process. This work by François Boucher is a model for a section of a large tapestry.

Lyric under the Stars
In October 2020 Lyric Theatre @ Illinois lit up Allerton Park's Sunken Garden with selected pieces and scenes delivered from a stone wall and steps with accompaniment from a small masked chamber ensemble. Audience members could have refreshments but otherwise were required to follow safety protocols at their widely spaced tables.
