FROM PEORIA TO LEBANON | EXHIBITION + CONCERT
Exhibition | December 2021 at Peoria Riverfront Museum
Concert | Sun, Dec 19, 2021, 2:30 PM at Scottish Rite Cathedral
This past August 4, 2021 marked the one-year anniversary of the horrific explosion that partially destroyed Beruit, Lebanon.
This December, the Peoria Riverfront Museum and the Scottish Rite Theatre in partnership with the Itoo (Aytou) Society and honorary chair Dr. Michele Couri will hold an art exhibition and concert to benefit Beruit, funding much-needed medical relief and supplies through the American Lebanese University.
Lebanon's leading contemporary artists, all of whom who have donated their work to be auctioned off in support of Beruit medical relief, will be featured at a special art exhibition at Peoria Riverfront Museum. This exhibition marks the first time that the collective works by contemporary artists of a country so closely linked to Peoria history and citizenry have ever been shown!
Leading the artists' cause for Lebanon is renowned pianist Dr. Tony Karam, who will perform at the Scottish Rite Theatre December 19. Dr. Karam's concert proceeds will support Beruit medical relief.

Thank you to Dr. Michele Couri, Dr. Tony Karam, the artists of Lebanon, Scottish Rite Theatre, Itoo (Aytou) Society, Lebanese American University and Visionary Society of Peoria Riverfront Museum for making this event possible.
