What's Up With Becks Florist's New Paint Job?

Aug 14, 2019

If you’ve driven by the Four Corners in downtown East Peoria lately, you’ve probably noticed a new bright spot. 

Becks Florist, on the corner of Main and East Washington, was recently repainted from beige to an eye-catching shade of yellow. 

The new paint job on the prominent building has generated a lot of buzz in the city. 

A manager at Becks told a Peoria Public Radio reporter that the business plans to have a large mural painted on the building’s west side, facing towards Main. 

The manager declined to describe the mural in any detail because its concept is planned as a surprise for the community by the owner, but said the artist has prepared sketches of the final artwork and will start on it in the next few days.
