Our guests this week are Michelle Nielsen Ott from Sculpture Walk Peoria, and Sharon Gramm with the Peoria Riverfront Market. The two groups are working together this year: Peoria Riverfront Market begins tomorrow morning; and Sculpture Walk's opening day celebration begins later in the day, just across the street. The idea is to give residents and visitors a double incentive to visit downtown Peoria.
Gramm and Ott both talk about the intent behind the collaboration. They also describe their own opening-day events, and the activities they have planned through the summer and into fall.
The first Peoria Riverfront Market of the year will be tomorrow from 8:00 to noon in the 200 block of Water Street. Sculpture Walk Peoria gets underway tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. on the Sun Plaza of the Peoria Riverfront Museum.
