The Evanston Art Center has always been a community-minded art and cultural organization. Our education program and exhibitions alone impact thousands of people in any given year.
EAC participates in Evanston events such as the Ethnic Arts Fair, the Fountain Square Arts Festival and the Citizens for a Greener Evanston Weekend by offering free arts activities. EAC helped initiate the “Art Under Glass” program in downtown Evanston, which installed artworks by local artists in windows of downtown retail spaces that had been vacated. We partner with schools in after-school arts programs and Evanston’s Youth Job Center with arts administration internships. We have organized arts activities in hospital settings such as Rush Behavioral Health, as well as senior residences.
