Art Club

Art Club 

Art Club is a monthly meeting of people who love art. We select a different topic each month, and enjoy a casual staff-led discussion (with Powerpoint slides) accompanied by coffee and treats. Participants are encouraged, though not required, to submit discussion suggestions of art that is related to the topic. It's like a book club, but without as much homework!
Coffee and treats are served. Please bring your own coffee cup!

Upcoming Events:

June Art Club has been moved to the third Tuesday of the month, June 20th

Topic- The George & Norma Kottemann Collection: A 40-Year Passion for Art
Featuring 45 works of mid-century to contemporary art, this remarkable exhibition traces one couple’s journey as collectors through four decades of discovery, appreciation, and patronage of the arts. Participants will choose a piece from the Kottemann Collection to discuss for about 3 minutes. Please email Shelby Lessen to claim your discussion piece at- slessen@peoriariverfrontmusuem.org.

Tues Jul 11 | 1 pm
Meeting in the boardroom
Topic- First Love
Do you remember the first time you were moved by art? Maybe it made you cry, or maybe it gave you a lifelong appreciation of art. Whatever the reason, we want to know it! We invite you to share which art piece is the FIRST one that moved you, and why? Please keep your discussion to three minutes and send the image you would like to discuss to slessen@peoriariverfrontmuseum.org. If we do not get through everyone’s pieces, August’s Art Club will be a continuation of this topic.
