PUBLIC ART

PHENOMENON

Stainless steel sculpture by Fisher Stolz represents the physical and cognitive processes in the brain interacting with and responding to the tangible elements of our physical world. The Library Board chose this sculpture as a representation of the library’s vision. Private donations funded the purchase and installation.

MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY BILLBOARD

Funded by the Friends of the Library and endowment funds, this vibrant piece is on Broadway Street. Pekin native Jeremie Draper created glass work which was then photographed and enlarged to billboard proportions. The billboard will be exchanged for another local artist’s work after a few years of display.

COOL WAVE JAZZ

Greg DePauw’s art was a Art Pop! Peoria 2015 People’s Choice Award winner. Several sections of the 48 x 12 foot billboard are displayed in and around the Quiet Reading Room. A professional artist for over 30 years, DePauw (1955-2017) was the founder of the Art Rod foundation, which promotes handicapped awareness and the triumph of the human spirit.
