Project 1612is an independent artist-run project space located in Peoria, Illinois. The space was co-founded in August, 2015 by Jessica Bingham, Zach Ott, and Alexander Martin (right) and is within the detached garage at the home of Jessica and Zach. Artists work for a short period of time and end their stay with a reception. All forms of artistry are welcome: painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture, installation, poetry, etc. We encourage artists to interact and activate the space while exploring new ideas and concepts, with full control over what they create.

Project 1612  is not a business, it is an extension of our studio practice. There are no submission fees, no participation fees, and no sales of art. We simply ask that artists come to make and share their art with Peoria.
