Methodist College ArtPop! Dedication and Artist Panel

Methodist College will host an ArtPop! Dedication and Artist Panel on Tuesday, September 12, at 6:00 p.m. The event will be in the Parliament room at Methodist College, 7600 N. Academic Drive in Peoria. Guests are invited to celebrate the six new ArtPop! additions to the college and meet with their creators. The panel will include a short presentation by each artist. After the panel discussion attendees will be able to take a tour of the murals with the artists, and ask questions and share observations about the art. 

Each piece of art was once used in a large-scale billboard display. To take the artwork from outdoor to indoor display the vinyl was cut into sections and stretched onto large wooden frames and installed on walls throughout the college. The addition of the ArtPop! Peoria works to Methodist College was made possible through a grant of the UnityPoint Health Methodist | Proctor Foundation and the generosity of various Methodist College employees.

ArtPop! Peoria is affiliated with the national ArtPop! program that features artists’ works on large-scale outdoor advertising billboards. ArtPop! Peoria is a project of Arts Partners of Central Illinois and Adams Outdoor.
