"Useful Pictures" Exhibition and Public Discussion

September 9 – 22, 2013

In the context of an Arts Economies graduate seminar, a group of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Arts Administration and Policy graduate students, with Professor Adelheid Mers, were invited by the Evanston Art Center to study the 'arts ecology' of Evanston. A goal was to better understand the roles that Art Centers play in their home communities while navigating a complex set of interests and serving multiple publics.

From September 9 – 22, EAC's galleries will showcase the research and resulting documents of this special field work project. We hope you'll join us on Saturday, September 21 from 3 to 5 pm for a Roundtable Discussion about this special project and its insights and actions out in the community and inside the Evanston Art Center.
