“During difficult times, we often look to the arts to provide us with a means for connection and inspiration,” said PACVB President/CEO JD Dalfonso. “The sessions will provide a great outlet for our local artists to continue sharing their work with our community and for the community to also help support them.”
“The arts are crucial to staying connected and growing our community’s culture” said Jenn Gordon, Arts Partners Executive Director. “We are excited to partner with the PACVB to give artists an outlet to share their creativity.”
A donation link through the Arts Partners of Central Illinois Facebook page (@ArtsPartners) will be available for the community to make donations to keep the series going and to support local artists during this time. In addition, a portion of the monies received will go toward purchasing meals from local restaurants for our region’s first responders and emergency personal such as police, fire and hospital staff.

“We wanted to create a way to support our local businesses and to support our local emergency and healthcare workers and this is a great way to do just that,” said Dalfonso.
