The Evanston Art Center (EAC), founded over 90 years ago in 1929, is an integral part of community life, providing access and experiences in the arts to people of
all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Through community-based events, workshops, exhibitions, artist talks and panel discussions, EAC helps expand its mission to provide accessible arts education and arts enrichment experiences to the community and the surrounding areas.

Our galleries are free and open to the public seven days a week. We offer docent led tours for individuals or groups (please call to schedule a tour), exhibition publications, exhibiting artists’ talks, interviews with curators and opening receptions at no charge to the public.

Opening receptions typically held on first Sunday of exhibition 1–4pm.
