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.
