“Last year’s Big Picture Festival was one of the most special events I’ve seen in Peoria in many years. The event truly made me so proud to be a Peorian. Big Picture was a perfect example of how art is alive and thriving in Peoria. The Festival gives artists from all walks of life to not only the opportunity to collaborate, but to witness first-hand the great work others are creating. I left last year’s Big Picture Festival uniquely inspired on a creative level, and challenged to spread my wings as a local artist.”
