FRESH: New Directions in Contemporary Art at the Peoria Riverfront Museum

On this week's episode of Out and About, Dr. Mae Gilliland Wright of ArtsPartners of Central Illinois talks with Bill Conger, curator of collections and exhibitions at the Peoria Riverfront Museum, about FRESH: New Directions in Contemporary Art, now on display through September 2024.

The exhibition challenges issues of identity, culture, media, and overall aesthetic approach, resulting in fantastical revelations of the visual art vernacular and represents the newest works added to Alice Walton’s Art Bridges Collection.
