A new exhibit at the Peoria Riverfront Museum is giving access to unique art, while raising funds for Beirut.

The “From Peoria to Lebanon” exhibition opened on Tuesday. It is a partnership between organizations in Peoria, New York City, and Beirut.

The exhibit features pieces from leading contemporary Lebanese artists.

A concert by pianist Dr. Tony Karam, an auction of exhibited artwork, and a meet-and-greet with artists have also been planned.

The month-long exhibition will provide medical relief through the Lebanese American University Medical Centers to those affected by the Beirut port explosion that happened in August 2020.
