Evanston Art Connects Memorial Day Staycation

Evanston Art Connects Memorial Day Staycation

Join Evanston Made, Downtown Evanston, Main-Dempster Mile, Central Street Evanston and several other organizations in a month-long Evanston community art event through June 9, where anyone and everyone can make art at home and display it for all to see. Beyond front doors and yard signs, we’re inviting all Evanston residents to “art-bomb” Evanston.  

Over Memorial Day Weekend, there will be special art installations in business windows for socially distant art strolls. Plus, retail shops will have special sales and "window shopping" with curbside pickup and restaurants will offer picnics-to-go for a family meal at home! Explore our wonderful community and support local businesses over this traditional family holiday weekend.
