Opening Reception: Friday, May 31 from 6 - 9pm

Evanston Made is an annual celebration in June that focuses on showcasing Evanston creatives. Throughout the month of June, studios, galleries, museums, workshops and businesses open their doors to showcase works (artistic, artisanal, etc.) and host events by Evanston creatives.

EVANSTON MADE GROUP SHOW

Evanston artists living or working in Evanston are invited to participate in the 6th Annual Evanston Made Group Show at the Evanston Art Center.

POP UP GALLERY & STORE

Hosted by the Evanston Art Center and produced by Anomaly Productions, the Pop-Up Gallery and Store is an "all-inclusive" event, located in the lobby of the Evanston Art Center from May 31 - June 30.

RANGE MOBILE LAB MURAL

The Range Mobile Lab mural currently on exhibit on the east side of the Evanston Art Center was generated from earlier Range Mobile Lab Evanston video remix performances. By Mat Rappaport with Anne Hayden Stevens.

The Range Mobile Lab, a converted a 1995 GMC step van, captures images from the surrounding environment which are mixed with preexisting video and projected onto screens mounted in the side windows of the truck. Sitting in the passenger seat of the truck, Rappaport “remixes” the environment in real time, performing a moving intervention into architectural space. Thus, "range" continues artist Mat Rappaport’s effort to shape the experience of urban environments through media-based interventions.
