Big Picture Festival is a Big Picture Initiative event

Big Picture Initiative is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Funds raised by the sponsors of Draw for a Cause chalk painting and donations to the Paint Fling will be used to pay teaching artists to work with kids in after-school programs and community centers. Big Picture members have successfully run art classes at the Common Place, the East Bluff Community Center, the Neighborhood House as well as a summer mural program and video class at Peoria Public Schools.

Mural Painting

Watch art come to life as murals are painted in real time. Big Picture is pleased to announce four great mural artists who will be painting this year. Street Artist Ard Doko, Muralist Megan Couri, Mural Artist Brenda Gentry, and Mural Artist and ArtPop winner Brett Fitzgerald.
