Calling All Local Artists to Join the Super Sidewalk Sale
Be a part of this years’ Super Sidewalk Sale in downtown Evanston on Saturday, July 28 & Sunday, July 29. Shoppers hit the sidewalks where independent retailers and national chains set up shop with too- good- to- resist deals. This year, local artists and live musical groups are invited to join downtown’s weekend event.
Evanston-based artists are invited to set up alongside downtown retail locations and in front of restaurants and service businesses to display their wares and one-of-a-kind artwork for the public to peruse, enjoy and purchase! If you are a local, Evanston artist interested in displaying and selling your paintings, jewelry, ceramics, sculptures, photography, etc., contact the Downtown Evanston office at (847) 866-6319. To be considered, artists must contact Downtown Evanston by Friday, June 29 as space is limited. There will be a $50 fee to participate and the artists are required to set up both Saturday 10am to 5pm and Sunday 11am to 5pm.
This event provides a wonderful opportunity for artists to increase exposure and showcase their creations. Because of Evanston’s easy access, this is a well-attended event by individuals from all over the north shore.
