Jaime Thome Art Challenge Evanston

Art Challenge!

Jamie Thome is making an art installation outside her south Evanston home, using embroidered words, adding a word a day, taking a picture, sharing on Facebook.

Jamie's challenge is to invite YOU to create something outside and share on social media. Use #evanstonmade and we'll share on our social feeds too! 

Make art happen, all over Evanston, apart, but TOGETHER.

Four Hands: Art Collab

Alice George is leading an initiative encouraging collaboration with a special focus on art-makers living in Evanston, IL, but open to anyone.

Challenge #1 Fairy Tale Number: Find, create or arrange precisely three things that share some quality. Maybe a photo or sketch, or a poem (haiku?), or painting, or a sculpture, or a performance, or a short-short, or a sound file, or things I have not conceived of. Post on Instagram using this hashtag #fourhandscollab

Deadline Thursday 3/26 at 11:59p  

Visit alicegeorge.org for more prompts and information on how to share your work if you're not on social media
