Evanston Made Membership Opportunities

Everything we do through our Artist Membership Program is designed to promote the Evanston Made artist. We create and source events to broaden exposure, meet collectors, connect to other artists and further their opportunities, whatever their professional goals may be.

Who are EM Artist Members?

Evanston Made artists are practitioners who live or work within Evanston. We also welcome artists in our bordering communities within one mile of downtown Evanston to join us. It will be noted in promotions if an artist's event falls outside of Evanston's border.

Partner Members

Partner Members are organizations or business that want to be part of the Evanston Made community. This can include exhibition venues, galleries, print shops, wine shops and any other artsy lovin' biz!

As with our other members, our Partner Members will stay in the know of all the artsy action in town. They will also be promoted throughout our EM community and at EM events. They may be invited to exhibit EM artists' work. Partner members can host EM Member's Mixers, a great way to introduce your business to our group in a friendly setting.
