The Brennan Trio contributes to Willowbrook’s art show


About 15 years ago, Villa Park’s Funky Java Coffee House (located at 40 S. Villa Ave.) began a December tradition of displaying pieces created by Willowbrook High School art students. The December art show was canceled in 2020 and 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but it returned in 2022. The Brennan sisters of Villa Park provided live music during the opening reception for the recent art show at the coffee house on Dec. 7. Pictured left to right are Maggie, Claire and Molly Brennan. Molly is a senior at Willowbrook, while Maggie is a sophomore. Claire is an eighth-grader at Jackson Middle School. The 2022 art show featured about 100 pieces of a variety of art mediums, including painting, ceramics, sculpture, graphic design and digital art.
