Recent Project News
Evanston Made is excited to work with building owners, SSAs, the City of Evanston, really anyone looking to activate commercial storefronts with art! Last October, we worked with Downtown Evanston and several building owners to place visual art in storefronts; 700 Church Street and 1704 Sherman Ave.
Now more than ever, artists need our civic engagement and support, as the creative industries are some of the hardest hit during Covid. Concurrently, businesses are closing, leaving storefronts in commercial areas vacant, which can cause blight and property damage. Evanston Made will carry out our mission to connect Evanston artists to the public by expanding the Art Under Glass program throughout the city.
Below is a list of the participating artists by location, with information on how to purchase work. We encourage you to Collect Evanston Art and post photos of the windows on social media using #evantsonmade. Interested in showing work in your storefront? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
