Storm Print City Exhibit at Backlot

September 6, 2021 @ 8:00 am - September 30, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Russel Muits w Storm Print City

This September, see Russell Muits’ Utility Covers on display at Backlot Coffee on Central Street.

About the work

Storm Print City is the printing obsession of Artist Russell Muits. Using block ink, raw canvas, and thousands of driving miles, Russ has created a nation-spanning collection of beautifully colored prints taken directly from the streets of the towns and cities visited in his travels. Often overlooked and forgotten, these sewer lids, storm grates, utility covers, and other bits of street metal are some of our oldest and most varied urban relics, and they each offer unique stories of history, industry, the arts, and the utilities that make modern life possible.

Evanston Made and Backlot Coffee created a partnership several years ago to exhibit Evanston Made Member’s Art. Each month a new artist exhibits and sells their work, 100% of sales go to the artist. This is a massive benefit for Evanston Made members and one of the many reasons to join! Learn more about joining at
