Over the years, the Evanston Art Center has presented notable exhibitions by some of the most well-regarded artists and curators of our time, including Gordon Matta-Clark, Arshile Gorky, John Baldessari and Martin Puryear, while more recently we have featured work by Nick Cave, Paul Nudd and Audrey Niffennegar. These exhibitions have garnered support from the National Endowment for the Arts, Illinois Arts Alliance, major foundations and generous individuals. We are currently working on compiling a history of our successful exhibition program and as we uncover more stories we will add them here.
Now is the time to visit the Evanston Art Center to view the exhibition of artworks to be auctioned. Over 50 works of art by leading Chicago artists are on exhibit in all 4 of EACs galleries. Advance bidding has begun and will continue through May 17th. We hope you'll also consider joining us for the Benefit Party on the evening of May 18 from 6:30 pm on. Tickets are available on our web site.
Exhibition opens on Sunday, February 24, 2013 with a reception from 1-4 p.m. The artists will attend the opening. All artworks will be on view through Sunday, April 7. We hope you'll join us at the opening and learn more about these three contemporary artists who will demonstrate varied artistic practices and choices of materials.
Thank you to all of our backers! This Kickstarter Campaign is a success. You can still give to the Street Arts Program over the next day to make our pledge drive an even bigger success!
The Evanston Art Center is hosting a 3-day educational program (please see schedule of events below) around street art called Street Arts as Public Pedagogy: Learning From the Margins on May 3, 4 and 5. This Kickstarter campaign raised money for artists' honoraria and to purchase the supplies. The overall goal of these events is to highlight artistic cultural efforts by those working in the street art realms of hip-hop culture and the visual arts so that we may grow visibility and awareness of these practices for audiences who may or may not have direct contact with them. We also want to shift how our communities view graffiti, youth, hip-hop, education, and art. The Evanston Art Center’s Education Department is proud to be a part of this yearlong series of Chicago street art exhibitions/actions instigated by the National Museum of Mexican Art.
January 20 – February 10
