'A Bright Night for the Arts' at Block

Mayor Stephen Hagerty and the Evanston Arts Council are hosting “A Bright Night for the Arts,” a celebration of the arts in Evanston, at 6 p.m. on Nov. 13 at the Block Museum on the Northwestern University campus.

A cocktail hour with tasty bites will start the celebration, followed by a stroll through the Block’s current exhibition, “Up is Down: Mid-century Experiments in Advertising and Film at the Goldsholl Studio.”

Mayor Hagerty will honor past volunteer members of the Evanston Arts Council as well as present the Mayor’s Award for the Arts to Harvey Pranian for his 30-year commitment to Young Evanston Artists (YEA!). The celebration’s “Bright Spots” include the Witness Quilt Project, which gathered over 200 community members to stitch quilts to honor local victims of domestic violence, and scenes from “I.D.,” Art of Evolution’s theater program in partnership with Mudlark Theatre. The program engaged Evanston students in an original production exploring issues of racism.

In addition, EMAP (Evanston Mural Project) will present local murals from the last two years and the artists who made them, and Picturing Evanston, a new website featuring the City’s vibrant arts community, will provide a multi-media presentation about local artists, makers and artisans.

More information available at City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz has proposed eliminating the City’s cultural arts programming in 2019.
