Visit the community garden next to the gas station at Main and Sheridan! The Renaissance Park Community Association works with the property owners to run a community garden. The RPCA and Backspace Collective collaborated to create a site for artwork in the garden. The eight-foot cube will house a variety of art installations. The first is a PEX installation by Backspace member Heather Brammeier.
Project 1612 is up and running! Read about it in Art & Society here.
Thank you so much to Chris Kukla for hosting a successful pit fire! Check out the results at our upcoming exhibition.
Backspace Collective was awarded 3rd Place for their collaborative, interactive piece Select All. The collaboration was part of the Peoria Art Guild’s exhibition Guess You Had to Be There. The exhibition was held at the Gateway Building in Peoria, and large numbers attended the reception and cut pieces from Select All to take home with them.
Select All, behind artists and Backspace members Jessica Bingham, Eugene Maison, Kari Thornton, and Heather Brammeier.
Thank you to the Peoria Art Guild, juror Joel Ross, and everyone who attended the exhibition!
