We are proud to now be displaying art exhibits at Unity Point Methodist on Broadway in Pekin. Local Artist, Susan Carson has paintings on display in the waiting area of their facility. The exhibits will change periodically to give other local artists a chance to get some exposure of their work. We will also soon be offering Exhibits within Pekin Hospital in their main elevator hallway. Local painter Chris Hancock will be the first display at the hospital. We are very excited to be able to offer these services to our community!

Art Market will start up in June 18th. We will be joining The Pekin Main Streets Farmers Market and will be set up on The courthouse lawn on Thursday evenings. We are excited for a new season and will offer music, performance, food and arts to you each Thursday.
