Evanston Made continues to bring visibility to BIPOC artists in our community with annual Group Shows and opportunities for BIPOC artists to build community with one another. The BIPOC Annual Group Show, started in 2022, was born out of Evanston Made’s “Equity & Inclusion” discussions. We committed to increasing membership for BIPOC members to 15% and to creating opportunities designed specifically for BIPOC artists. The BIPOC Group Show serves as a membership drive for the organization and addresses the growing interest of art collectors in the region who are passionate about supporting BIPOC artists. Evanston Made plans to host events to connect BIPOC artists to new collectors and patrons.

Evanston Art Center has partnered with Evanston Made to host Annual Group Shows featuring Member’s work since 2017. Located at 1717 Central Street, blocks from the Metra stop, the Evanston Art Center features an exceptional exhibition space, ADA accessible galleries and a professional curatorial team. Evanston Made is grateful for the opportunity to exhibit artists and host events in this space. Learn more at https://www.evanstonartcenter.org/
