Community members are encouraged to view Evanston’s latest public art installation, “Geocommunetrics: An Intersection of Evanstons,” on the corner of Davis Street and Oak Avenue, where a major fire took place in December 2013. Over the next two weeks, local artists will work with the designer Jason Brown, “The Zip Code Kid” (TZCK), to complete the art display paying tribute to the three Evanston zip codes: 60201, 60202 and 60203.
The Evanston Arts Council proposed this idea to provide a unique way to challenge perceptions of the use of empty-lot space. The plaid-based design will be woven, based on the numbers in the zip codes and will include the following colors: brown, for land, representing 60201; blue, for Lake Michigan, representing 60202; green, for wilderness, representing 60203; and orange, which serves as the common thread that weaves the community together.
