It is also our mission to create venues that support public and private education, community events, economic development, and cultural tourism. NCI ARTworks showcases local, regional, and national talent to the residents and students in LaSalle, Bureau, and Putnam counties. Whether it is facilitating major public art installations like the Ray Paseka murals in Cherry, Mendota, Streator, and Seneca or the Susan Burton mosaics in Princeton, or hosting monthly art exhibitions at the ARTworks Gallery in the Westclox building the 2nd Friday of each month and providing world-class music programs to Illinois Valley residents and schools, every single ounce of skill and expense necessary to provide the Illinois Valley with top-level arts and culture is worth it. By attending our events, traveling with us to national and international arts and culture meccas, and donating to our various educational arts programs, the return on investment of your donation is a thriving arts culture in the Illinois Valley. Art is not only culture, it is also business. When communities support venues like NCI ARTworks, residents end up enjoying a standard of living that encourages talented people to stay and contribute to the cultural and economic life of the community.

Here and Again Inc is a non – profit organization that encourages the growth of artistic minds and to produce opportunities in the arts and entertainment industry. 

One day, shortly after starting the paperwork for Here and Again Inc NPO status, a local pastor came into the Majestic Theatre in Streator, IL to get some popcorn for his youth group. While the popcorn was popping, I told him about Here and Again Inc

About a week later the pastor returned and invited me to a meeting with some of his friends. At the meeting we discussed the possibility of a community radio station as a project for Here and Again Inc. We all agreed that it would have a positive impact on the community. Thus, our first project WRWO 94.5FM (Low Power) was born.

We broadcast WRWO from downtown Ottawa, IL at Wallace Hall. We can be heard worldwide on the internet as well as the air waves around Ottawa, IL.

Here and Again Inc.’s purpose is to raise the quality of life in the community using education in the arts, music, radio, and other media; to have a positive impact on people and community.

One day we hope to broadcast local and national acts from the Majestic in Streator, IL and Will Rogers in Charleston, IL stage.

Please consider partnering with Here and Again Inc. to help further opportunities in the arts for the Illinois River Valley and beyond.
