WHAT WE DO

We connect Evanston arts to the public.

WHO WE ARE

We are the home for discovering Evanston art events

Artist Galleries

All member artists have a unique page created on evanstonmade.org featuring a their art, a selfie if they wish and short artist statement, as well as links to contact info, websites and social media accounts.

Events

Evanston Made hosts artist events throughout the year. We organize and promote First Saturday Art Events every month. We sponsor studio tours and collaborations with retail hosts, host pop up shows and workshops. City wide studio tours in June and September, along with the month long Evanston Made group show at the Evanston Arts Center in June is one of the biggest arts events in the city. This year we introduced the Maker's Market and monthly Members Mixers.

Calendar

The one-stop spot for what's happening today, what's starting tomorrow. The Community Calendar is a self serve calendar for all cultural events in Evanston. The EM calendar promotes our members events only.

Memberships

"Membership has its privileges," as members of Evanston Made surely know! Membership fees designed for artists, businesses and partners guarantee entry and/or participation in events all year round, as well as all of our promotional efforts, events, resources and news.

Resources

Our goal is to provide Evanston artists with links and recommendations for all the services they may need. In addition to our calendar of events, we provide a current listing of framers, photographers, as well as call-for-artists and more.

Shop

We are building a robust online shop filled with our member's handmade products. Online sales have become the norm for all sales, including art, and we want to make sure our artists can be found by anyone anywhere.
