Call for Artists
Local Residency Studio Program 
Prairie Center of the Arts provides artists with residencies in our Book Arts and Printmaking print shop facilities. This fully equipped Print Shop allows artists to use unique machinery and a plethora of type that most would not have access to otherwise.

The Prairie Center was founded in 2003 to provide artists with opportunities for research and development of new work; to provide an accessible facility for art and creativity that embraces the Peoria area community offering equipment and new technologies not currently available to the general public.

We provide free studio space for 6 months with operational hours. We are looking for local area artists (or artists that can provide their own housing) with a dedicated studio practice that can commit to using their studios 15-25 hours per week. 

Isabella Myers, current Book Arts A.I.R, working the Print Shop
