art & society - may/jun 2006

In Full Bloom

Our second issue of art & society™ is sure to give you spring fever. There’s so much here for you: a local artist profile, golf tips, how to look your best this summer, photos from your favorite community events, and another preview event. Last issue’s preview of Lakeview’s Museum Masquerade turned into a phenomenal success, and we look forward to the ever-popular Wines on the Prairie previewed in this edition. We also created a new feature called CIBP Tour where we take a look at specialties offered by local merchants. We start our tour in Peoria Heights sampling signature cocktails.
