The 3-D Art Studios at Western Illinois University received a long overdue overhaul.
The program is housed in the lower level of the Heating Plant Annex. Professor Kat Myers said the space was previously a gymnasium, locker room, and storage room, which were not remodeled much after the program moved into the building.
Now -- after many years -- a full renovation has been completed. Myers said even the little things make a big difference.
Macomb is facing the same problem the Five Man Electrical Band sang about in 1971: “Signs, Signs, Everywhere there's signs, Blocking out the scenery, Breaking my mind.”
Macomb's issue is with all the signs being hung from the Chandler Park fence. It's a great location to hang a banner because it's right along the highway and across the street from the train depot. Numerous organizations have started placing banners there to promote various causes and events. But the city has a problem with the practice.
