art & society - mar/apr 2006

Welcome to art & society™ magazine!

Jan Wright Vergon
For more than eight years, Central Illinois Business Publishers, Inc. (CIBP) brought you a monthly arts and cultural magazine. After brainstorming a few months ago, the staff of CIBP thought we might expand our monthly arts magazine to include other important non-profit charitable events. We knew you’d be interested in a bit of history about the organization, who it benefits, who attended the event, how much money was raised, and other details. We were curious, too, about the creative people behind the scenes and thought you might be as well.
