WHAT WE DO
We connect Evanston arts to the public.
WHO WE ARE
We are the home for discovering Evanston art events
The 2nd Annual Maker's Market was a huge success! 75 vendors transformed the 5th floor of Evanston's Maple Street Garage into an art fair! 500 customers came through at staggered entrance times creating a calm socially distanced shopping experience throughout the afternoon.
We are so grateful to all the artisans and customers for braving the cold and supporting the arts in Evanston with enthusiasm and joy!
The Interview Project
Lisa D interviews every artist participating in the June 2020 Group Show and Pop Up (thats 95 artists!). Once you know the artist's story you'll love their art even more.
Equity & Inclusion
We believe that Evanston Made should meet and exceed The 15 Percent Pledge to have 15% of our members be Black, Brown, Indigenous People of Color. We have work to do.
Full Statement here.
