QUINCY (WGEM) - Local artists have a chance to help beautify the Illinois Veterans Home in Quincy as crews continue to rebuild it. Illinois Arts Council Agency partnered with the Capital Development Board's Art-in-Architecture. They are accepting applications from artists, or artist-led teams who live and work in Illinois. Arts Quincy Executive Director Laura Sievert said the state is investing a percentage of construction costs into this work. 'So there are five areas of the veterans home that will get outdoor public art, it may be one single sculpture or it may be multiple installations.
