history

Pictured on the left is a map from the 2nd annual Open Studios Evanston tour in 2015, featuring more than 100 participating artists and an accompanying exhibit at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center. This annual studio tour changed its name to Evanston Made in 2016, to alleviate confusion with the non-profit organization Open Studio Project.
