On May 19, art by students from all Evanston schools transformed Raymond Park into a colorful open-air art gallery. YEA!, founded in 1987 by Harvey Pranian, invites public, private and parochial school students – preschool through high school – to participate in this inclusive, non-competitive festival.

Evanston residents of all ages were engaged in a day focused on the arts and the power of arts in community-building. The art collections were displayed thoughtfully, by schools, throughout the park so that family and friends could stroll through the park enjoying the presentations.

The day showcased the work and performances of young Evanston artists, including those from the performing arts.

The Young Evanston Artists festival was a celebration of the arts and the diversity of the resdients of Evanston and the ways in which this community values art and artists of all ages.

This day was also a celebration of Evanston’s art teachers, as it was a visual representation of the art created in classrooms across the City.
