Mission: To inspire and empower the community through the arts
Vision: ART, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a vision to enhance the quality of life for the community, especially our youth, through art and educational programs by providing them with a safe, structured, and enriching environment in which to positively and constructively engage their imaginations while discovering pathways to a bright future.
The Romain Arts & Culture Community Center sits in the former Greeley School-a 50, 000 square foot school building in Peoria, IL. The building was purchased and paid in full in July of 2018.
In the age of STEAM-based education, community centers such as this are a valuable asset. The center offers arts education programs and rental spaces for community events, entrepreneurs, businesses, and artists.
We provide artistic expression through programming and education, guiding our youth and the entire community in encouraging the creation, appreciation and understanding of the arts. Also, under the tutelage of renowned artist, Jonathon Romain, artists will have the opportunity to learn how to become successful and sustainable entrepreneurs.
