Working in downtown Peoria has given me the opportunity to watch and photograph the work being done on the Peoria Riverfront Museum as it progresses towards completion. It has been quite amazing to watch as what began as a giant hole in the ground early this winter has taken shape in to what will become a centerpiece for Peoria’s Riverfront. I have been documenting the progress on the museum building, as well as the new Caterpillar Welcome Center next door. You can see quite a difference in the building in the photos presented below, the first of which were taken in March 2012, the second in July 2012.
My only regret has been that I didn’t climb to the top of my parking garage back in December to capture a true ‘before’ photo!
More info on the project can be found at the link below:
You can view several more photos from this project in The Peoria Riverfront Museum Photo Gallery.
