WHAT WE DO

We connect Evanston arts to the public.

WHO WE ARE

We are the home for discovering Evanston art events

Member's Portfolio Page

Every member artist gets a free portfolio page on the website. They can load up to 15 images. They can load their resume, bio, artist statement and any contact links they would want the public to have.

Evanston Made Community Calendar

The Evanston Community Calendar is available to the public.  ANYONE can enter an Evanston based event. Any and all events including art, dance, book signings, poetry readings, trunk shows, writing, theatre, music.

Professional Development

Our Professional Development Workshop series offer expert advice on different aspects of the working artist's life. Past workshops include "Instagram for Artist who don't Love Instagram" and "Photographing Your Work".

The Art Shop

In the past year Evanston Made has built an extraordinary online shop for our members to sell their wares! We have hundreds of gifts ideas, such as jewelry, calendars, notecards and puzzles, as well as original pieces of art in all shapes, sizes and prices!

Make The Art Shop your holiday gift giving destination!

First Saturdays Evanston Listings

We are proud to have created The First Saturday Evanston initiative. Every month art galleries, organizations and individual artists know to plan their events for the first Saturday of the month to be part of our calendar and robust promotional effort.

Maker's Market

The 2nd Annual Maker's Market was a huge success! 75 vendors transformed the 5th floor of Evanston's Maple Street Garage into an art fair! 500 customers came through at staggered entrance times creating a calm socially distanced shopping experience throughout the afternoon.

We are so grateful to all the artisans and customers for braving the cold and supporting the arts in Evanston with enthusiasm and joy!

The Interview Project

Lisa D interviews every artist participating in the June 2020 Group Show and Pop Up (thats 95 artists!). Once you know the artist's story you'll love their art even more.

The Interview Project
