Winter in the midwest is grey, bleak, and most of all: cold. This could be an easy excuse to stay inside, secluded and unsatisfied. Or, this could be a ready canvas for making color and coming together as a community!
Winter HeARTh is an annual community public art series that seeks to bring together the residents of Evanston during the cold, isolating winter months. Each project consists of a low-barrier (everybody welcome!) collectively made project, and a temporary public installation. This is a fun way for artists and amateurs alike to come out and make something, and have it make the public square shine a little brighter.
Initiated and produced annually by Jason Brown, Winter HeARTh is an inherently collaborative effort. Each year, it has been sponsored by the Evanston Arts Council, and supported by our creative partners such as Downtown Evanston, the Ridgeville Foundation, the Evanston Public Library, as well as local businesses and eateries.
