Fondulac District Library announces a new exhibit from local artist Daniel Botkin as the latest installment for its ongoing Fine Arts at FDL program.

His mixed media series, Visions of Johanna: The Life and Lyrics of Bob Dylan, will be on display through August. Botkin’s artwork portrays bold and vibrant interpretations of Dylan’s songs, and features thoughtfully executed elements of surrealism. Botkin studied art at Illinois Central College and Illinois State University and graduated with a B.S. in Art. He has exhibited his work in galleries and juried competitions across the nation and has been the recipient of several awards and grants. He also has published three comic books, which are in the archives of the Graphic Novels Collection at Columbia University, and he has recorded three CDs of his music.

Fine Arts at FDL expands the library’s mission by stimulating imagination and fostering lifelong learning. The program gives local artists the opportunity to exhibit new work in a public setting, and the library encourages all artists in East Peoria and surrounding communities to submit an application for consideration. A Walker display system and a glass-front display case are available for temporary exhibitions of art. Applications are welcome anytime and are reviewed on a revolving basis under the guidance of library policy. To be considered, please review the policy and complete the online application at
