Peoria Culture

Peoria Culture

Located on DuSable Street within Peoria, the African American Museum Hall of Fame celebrates the contributions of African Americans in the areas of art, history, science, law enforcement, humanities, and literature. Each year the AAHFM sponsors two major community events: the Black Arts Festival, a talent showcase and art fair, affording African Americans artists the opportunity to showcase their talent and artwork as well as connect with the buying public, and the Red, Black, and Green Ball held annually in April, recognizing and celebrating notable achievements and contribution to the African American Community.

The museum features an Oral History Center, a comprehensive exhibit on the life and times of Richard Pryor, and many other exhibits, programs, lectures, poetry readings and other cultural events that are held to enlighten the public. The museum is open Monday through Friday from 11 am – 2:30 pm, and admission is free. For more information, call 673-2206 or click HERE.

The Contemporary Art Center on South West Water Street is Peoria's cultural hub featuring art exhibitions, artist studios, art instruction, comedy improv, poetry nights, yoga and tai chi classes, jazz and blues performances. The Contemporary Art Center exhibits the work of living artists at the forefront of their fields. About 20 resident artists are constantly creating art on-site as well as prolific artist and co-founder Preston Jackson continues to maintain his sculpture and painting studio.
