Save the Evanston Art Center

Keith Brown started this petition to Evanston Art Center Arts Community

If you would like to see the Evanston Art Center continue offering its highly-regarded arts education, exhibitions, outreach and public programming, please sign this petition. Your signature will indicate to the Evanston City Council your support in allowing the Art Center to remain at the 2603 Sheridan Road building (which we rent from the City) for 2 more years; time needed to finalize a location that accommodates expanded Art Center programming.

 

On Monday evening, February 3, the City Manager is planning to recommend to Evanston’s Human Services Committee that they consider invoking the exit clause in the Art Center’s lease, forcing the Art Center to prematurely leave 2603 Sheridan Road. This forced move out would do irreparable damage to the Art Center, to the people it employs, the local businesses it supports, and to the services it provides to our diverse communities throughout Evanston, the region and the country.

 

By signing this petition, you are telling Evanston’s City Council that the Evanston Art Center deserves to operate from its current location for at least 2 years. And we ask that you STAND UP FOR THE EVANSTON ART CENTER in person by attending the Human Services Committee meeting on Monday, February 3, 6pm and the full City Council Meeting on Monday, February 10 at 7pm, both at the Civic Center.

 

Sincere thanks for your support.
