Evanston Made Kicks off May 31

I am so excited for this upcoming weekend! I am tagging and preparing ornaments and stakes to be part of the month-long pop up shop at the Evanston Art Center in conjunction with Evanston Made.

On Friday, May 31, the Evanston Art Center will be teeming with local artists and their friends for the Evanston Made Group Show Opening Party. There will also a Side/Lot Experimental Film Screening, which was a delight of moving pictures last year.

In addition to viewing plethora of visual arts created locally and meeting the artists who created the work, attendees can also take home gift items and functional art from the Evanston Made Pop Up Shop. When the party opens at 6 pm, the Evanston Art Center Lobby area will also be transformed into a storefront. Numerous local creators have provided a sampling of their best-selling items for you to peruse for one-stop gift-shopping.

The store includes ceramics, clothing, glassware, jewelry, letterpress/print, metalwork, mosaic, sculpture, soap/oil, textile/fiber, woodwork/furniture and more adornments for yourself, your loved ones, or your home.
