Evanston Mural Arts Program
Evanston Mural Arts Program (EMAP) is Art Encounter’s new public art initiative. Art Encounter has launched the program to help community groups, artists, residents, and business districts uplift their neighborhoods and strengthen their communities through mural art. EMAP works with the City of Evanston, local business districts, and area groups to provide curatorial leadership and project management support towards shared goals of community enrichment, civic engagement, and beautification.
In our first two years, we have overseen 10 large-scale murals with 11 artists, in six Evanston wards, in collaboration with 20 community partners, and with over 400 youth!
