On this week’s episode of Out and About, Bill Conger joins host Jenn Gordon to talk about the current exhibit at the Peoria Riverfront Museum, Ken Hoffman: 50 Years in Peoria. Hoffman arrived in Peoria in 1969, accepting the position of professor of painting at Bradley University. Beginning with a mural work painted in 1970, this exhibition explores the 50-year artistic journey which has realized these humorous, unmistakable, and often very large-scale paintings of animals in suits.
