'Transformative Manifestations' to be unveiled at the Contemporary Art Center of Peoria

On this week's episode of Out and About, Dr. Mae Gilliland Wright of ArtsPartners of Central Illinois talks with professional artist and designer Heather Ford about her upcoming exhibition Transformative Manifestations, taking place July 5-August 16 at the Contemporary Art Center of Peoria.

Ford's work explores innovative and exciting user-centered design experiences, methods and strategies that involve user interface, user experience and fine art. While her methods involve science and technology, her work is spiritual at its core — resulting in often surprising outcomes.
