Nikki Romain is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Artists ReEnvisioning Tomorrow (ART, Inc.). Nikki and her husband, Jonathon, are local artists who purchased the shuttered Greeley School, a 50,000 sq ft building on NE Jefferson, from Peoria Public Schools. After Peoria was ranked #1 on the 247WallSt.com website list of the “worst” cities for black Americans, Jonathon and Nikki Romain believed that, in purchasing this old school, they could provide a beacon of light and hope to a community that’s often overlooked. They have transformed the school into the in the Romain Arts & Culture Community Center.
