One Year of Gratitude | CEO John D Morris

One Year of Gratitude | CEO John D. Morris

A year ago, April 10, 2018, John D. Morris became CEO of Peoria Riverfront Museum. In celebration and gratitude, John recorded a short video to say "thank you" to our Peoria Riverfront Museum members, donors, and Visionary Society Members.

John's first year at the museum has ushered in a fantastic slate of big programs and exhibits (and sculptures), from launching the Every Student Initiative - a major Central Illinois educational program which has seen thousands of young students coming into the Museum's exhibits, planetarium and giant screen theater with curricula matched to their school studies - to bringing in the 30-foot Seward Johnson bronze sculpture "Return Visit" (Lincoln and the common man), which ushered in the Illinois bicentennial and the area's largest self-curated exhibition to date: Celebrate Illinois: 200 Years in the Land of Lincoln.
