You’re invited to be part of Evanston history! Art Encounter’s Evanston Mural Arts Program is leading an exciting mural project this year, celebrating the lives and legacies of notable women leaders in Evanston history. The mural will be painted by a team of artists led by veteran muralist Dorian Sylvain on a public wall in downtown Evanston. The Evanston Women’s History Project at the Evanston History Center and Shorefront Legacy Center, are working with Art Encounter to develop the content for this mural.
Share your input!
On Saturday, April 29 at 11:00 a.m., we are gathering at Evanston Township High School to hear YOUR stories of Evanston women who you think should be included in the mural: not only historical subjects but more contemporary women of local impact. If you have subjects and stories that you want to share, please join us for this 90-minute listening session. Following the session, our artist team will use this input to develop the design for the mural. This meeting will take place in person only.
To RSVP for the Community Input Session or to submit your thoughts and feedback online, please fill out our online form.
If you are coming without RSVPing, plan to park at ETHS in Lot 1 on Dodge Avenue and enter through Entrance 1. Map is here!
