This week, we're talking with Kip Strasma and artist Preston Jackson. The MAXAM Building is presenting its Fall Art Show, featuring the work of Central Illinois Artists. Jackson is one of the artists whose work will be on display. They talk about the initial decision to identify a potential art venue in the building, and about its proximity to places like the Contemporary Art Center and the Peoria Riverfront Museum. Many of the works in this show are designed to encourage interaction between the art (or the artists) and the observer.
The MAXAM Building's Fall Art Show kicks off with an opening reception tonight at 5:00. After the show, dinner will be available at The Broadway Lounge, followed by a jazz performance at 8:00 p.m.
