Big Picture Arts Festival 2018 in the Peoria Warehouse District
Saturday October 13, 2018 was a historic day for Peoria. The first annual Big Picture Peoria Arts Festival splashed through the Warehouse District! We were amazed by Peoria’s talent and support of the arts. Amazing is an understatement!
Over 1500 people came through to enjoy live painting, a chalk art competition, community murals, dancing, singing, a film fest, live music, and street food. The community worked together to complete a collaborative mural while professional, international artist Ard Doko created a spray paint masterpiece, all in the Gabbert Art Park! The chalk art competition transformed our parking lots with windows into other worlds. All proceeds went toward local art education.
We are excited to partner with local businesses and artists again next year to make this festival even bigger and better! Read more here: https://www.bigpicturepeoria.org/.
