This week in our look at stories from around the state, we have a story from Illinois Public Radio’s Guy Stephens. Artists throughout the Rock River Valley recently opened their studios to the public, and you may be surprised by the number of working artists that are creating work in north central Illinois. Guy Stephens visited some of the places where their inspiration becomes reality
