BIPOC Group Show at Evanston Art Center

June 3rd, 2022 @ 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Kicking off the Evanston Made 2022 exhibit series, is the BIPOC Members Group Show at Evanston Art Center, featuring contemporary art works created by Evanston Made’s BIPOC Members. BIPOC members of Evanston Made identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Color.

Curated by Artist and Community Activist Fran Joy with Advisory Council members Indira Johnson, Laurice Bell, Anne Wolff and Lisa Degliantoni, the group show will be on exhibit June 3- 30, and will host free public programming throughout June.

The public is invited to the opening reception Friday, June 3 from 5-8 p.m.

“Supporting and promoting BIPOC artists and curators is a priority of mine and I am honored to collaborate with Evanston Made in the beautiful Evanston Art Center,” said Fran Joy, artist and curator.

The public is invited to a tour and curator’s talk, Thursday, June 16 at 7 p.m.

Evanston Made and Evanston Art Center will forgo the traditional commission structure and pay artists 100% of art sales.

“This BIPOC Group Show is part of a national trend on making bold and long overdue amends to black and brown artists, who have been massively underrepresented in the arts,” said Lisa Degliantoni, Executive Director of Evanston Made.

“The Evanston Art Center is very honored to be partnering with Evanston Made and Curator, Fran Joy, on this important BIPOC Group show by providing the gallery and programming space to underrepresented and marginalized artists,” said Paula Danoff, President & CEO of Evanston Art Center.

More than 25 artists are participating in the exhibit, listed here in order of first name; Angela Williams, Ben Blount, Bryana Bibbs, Cherie Lockett, David Niari, Debra Salter, Elizabeth Thomas, Fran Joy, Indira Freitas Johnson, Jevoid Simmons, Juan Gerena, June Ahleman, KL Wolff, Levern Dahlman, Makeba Kedem-DuBose, Melissa Raman Molitor,  Michael Winchester, Orman Ward, Paula Cofresi-Silverstein, Peyton Evans, Rose-Marie Lamour, Sholo Beverly, Stacy Thomas, Susan Cua, Tasha Nemo, Theo Hall, Yancey Hughes, Yaounde Olu and Yeefah Thurman.
