We are excited to welcome our newest EAC Intern, David, an exchange student visiting from Shanghai, China! David writes about his first impressions of the Evanston Art Center in the blog post below:
If you are looking for a place to visit and enjoy the art in Evanston, Evanston Art Center (EAC) must be the best choice for you. You can have exhibitions, classes and events in the EAC. So let’s just visit the Evanston Art Center in the first view.
First, we walk in the EAC from the gate. Here is the first floor of exhibition area.
In the first floor, there is a ceramics studio where you can have some ceramics classes and the mixed media studio for people to use.
Going upstairs to the second floor, there are the studio exhibition that changes theme throughout the year. Besides that, there is a printmaking studio.
The most interesting artwork for me is the avatar sculpture of Donald Trump. The name is ’Be Careful Who You Listen To’. The main body of the sculpture consists of the head of Trump with two demons on the left and right. In my opinion, the sculpture vividly expresses that the artist does not like their new president.
