    Exhibit Whitney Wb

    Vantage Points: Contemporary Photography from the 

    Whitney Museum of American Art

    September 14 through November 10

    The first exhibition of its kind in the nation, Vantage Points: Contemporary American Photography , is a collaboration between the Whitney Museum of American Art , founded by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney and regarded as the foremost institution of contemporary American art; Art Bridges , founded by Alice Walton (daughter of Walmart founder Sam Walton), whose mission is to bring outstanding American art to the public; and the Peoria Riverfront Museum. The exhibition features photographs by 20 of the most influential artists of the 1970s through the 2000s, including Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorp, Sally Mann, Diane Arbus, Gregory Crewdson, William Eggleston, Nan Goldin and Richard Avedon.

    Vantage Points is the first contemporary photography exhibition hosted by the Peoria Riverfront Museum.

    The photographs in Vantage Points provide an examination of the impact of photography at a time where the camera has become a mode of both cultural and creative expression for all, elaborating on techniques, meaning, and context in the genre of contemporary photography. Vantage Points tells the stories of subject and photographer, and of photography as an art form.

    The museum gratefully acknowledges our Vantage Points: Contemporary American Photography sponsors, Art Bridges Foundation, the Oak River Foundation and the Visionary Society.

    The Last Black Man in San Francisco

    Sat, Oct 5 | 7 PM

    Giant Screen Theater

    Presented by GummFest | Co-sponsored by The African American Hall of Fame Museum

    Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. As he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him to the reality of his situation.

    A wistful odyssey populated by skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and other locals on the margins, The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poignant and sweeping story of hometowns and how they’re made—and kept alive—by the people who love them.

    IL River Classroom

    Join us every third Thursday for Tiny Tot Explorers! Preschoolers and their adult caregivers will enjoy a story and hands-on art or science activities related to the book. Each month will have a different theme that correlates to one or more of the museum’s pillars of art, science, history and achievement!

    November is National Novel Writing Month, so our theme will be…Authors!

    Free for members and with general admission.
