Over the past week, some of our Evanston Art Center interns interviewed an artist from our Evanston Made Exhibit that caught their eye.
Learn more below about: Vanessa Filley, Stephen Murphy, Kristen Neveu, Jevoid Simmons and Dorit Jordan Dotan.
First is an interview with Lisa Degliantoni, the creator of Evanston Made.
How did Evanston Made start, what was the inspiration for the project?
Pedro Velez is the first of six in house resident artists participating in the Evanston Art Center’s Society! Artwork In-Residence Program. Pedro is a multidisciplinary artist whose work merges his interests in journalism and art criticism into visual essays that take the form of large sculptural paintings, photographic collages, and limited edition posters. Velez’s work focuses on many topics branching from race, politics and other aesthetic concerns.
We loved having Jon Hansen with You & Me (WCIU) at the Evanston Art Center this week. Watch him create some art in our Ceramics Studio with our very own Mollie Morris and Paula Danoff.

The “Studio Exhibition,” featuring an amalgamation of artwork produced by students of all levels, opened last weekend at the Evanston Art Center (EAC). This two-level exhibition includes an impressive range of work from students that recently completed an EAC class, and features paintings, sculptures, printmaking, jewelry and ceramics, among other media. Although the show reflects the EAC’s many course offerings, it also emanates creativity and offers visual variety for viewers.
Rob Mulholland, Operation Specialist Project Manager.
The Evanston Art Center (EAC) welcomed Rob Mulholland to its staff in March as EAC’s Operation Specialist Project Manager. Programming is foundational to his work: assisting to create “an environment for members, students and guests to have the opportunity for creative experiences and personal growth,” as he describes it. According to Mulholland, his primary duties include researching, evaluating current programming and recommending new programming for the EAC Maker Lab, which features innovative and design experiences, movement and yoga initiatives and the culinary arts center.
Change is in the air at the Evanston Art Center (EAC). The most exciting change this spring is our move to 1717 Central Street in Evanston at the end of May. The new location features a contemporary design, open space and a coffee shop to facilitate community interaction. Its central Evanston location and updated programming will make the Evanston Art Center a place where creativity meets community.
