After months of study, the Spurgeons building on South Main Street in Monmouth was selected to house artist studios and a retail shop to sell their work.
The choice was made by city representatives and members of ArtSpace, which is a non-profit arts development and consulting organization from Minneapolis.
The Spurgeons building has a limestone front and was built in 1940.
Rich Egger speaks with representatives from the Galesburg Civic Art Center, the West Central Illinois Arts Center in Macomb, and the Buchanan Center for the Arts in Monmouth.
