Datebook: Illinois Art Station's New Home Opens Next Month
Since 2016 the Illinois Art Station has provided community youth and their families transformative, hands-on learning through the visual arts. Since it began programming in 2018, Illinois Art Station has served more than 2,900 children and their families.
The organization's new facility at 101 E. Vernon Ave. in Normal opens in September, with plans for a Pop Into IAS artmaking event and grand opening celebration and fundraiser.
This week on Datebook, WGLT's Ariele Jones speaks with Illinois Art Station executive director Laura Jaster about the organization's evolution and new permanent home.
