UPDATE — Autumn 2017:
Efforts were made to help the nonprofit foundation, Save the Bowen, Inc. with saving the face of the Peoria State Hospital but proved unsuccessful. The demolition of the building began in early 2017 and the limestone blocks were sold. However, I am still pushing the film for its many educational purposes.
