The Whole Story...

Decatur is one of 24 regions in Illinois participating in the Arts Alliance Illinois "Vax to Get Back" campaign to create more than 72 pro-vaccination projects this summer. 

The Decatur Area Arts Council is excited to have worked with these three talents local artists as they created unique art projects. Together they make up the local "Lust for Life" campaign to inspire and encourage people in Decatur to get a COVID vaccination. With everyone's help, we can spread the "Lust for Life" and “Vax to Get Back” messages,  so we can all be safely and creatively social again.
