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 to name just a few examples of what we offer our members. A city wide studio tour in June, along with the month long Evanston Made group show at the Evanston Arts Center (the venue's biggest event of the year) is one of the biggest arts events in the city. In 2019 the Artist Studio Tour will take place in the October, as well. And we have bigger visions for the future. The new Evanston Made model will also be hosting new events every month to connect and promote our members.

Calendar

Our calendar is the one-stop you need to know what's happening today, what's starting tomorrow and what you should pencil in for next month. We update the events calendar constantly. It can be viewed as a list or monthly grid for your convenience. Go to Evanston Made Calendar.

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. We offer varied membership options to include all of the Evanston art loving community. Please click on the membership page for more details.

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.

Sponsorships

Our arts community is a big part of what makes Evanston so unique. We are a city teeming with highly educated culturally engaged neighbors! We encourage and facilitate collaborations with corporate and individual members of the public to keep our arts robust. Please consider becoming a sponsor!
