Available to view during Peoria Art Guild business hours during the month of November.

Peoria Women NOW is a Peoria Art Guild exhibit in collaboration with Big Picture Initiative and is part of a broader series of satellite events surrounding the Peoria Symphony Orchestra’s November 20, 2021 concert at the Peoria Civic Center Theater, HerStory: A Musical Tribute to Betty Friedan, where there will be a world premiere of music composed in honor of the internationally famous Peorian Betty Friedan for the centennial of her birth. Credited with starting the second wave of feminism, Friedan authored “The Feminine Mystique” and co-founded the National Organization for Women (NOW). Playing on the concept of NOW, this exhibit celebrates the work of contemporary central Illinois women artists and what they have contributed to our local arts community. The exhibit will be on display through the month of November in the Peoria Art Guild’s Project Space.
