About Our Auction

BUY ORIGINAL ART, SUPPORT YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD, AND DO GOOD: 10% of each winning bid will be given to an Evanston charity of the winner's choice. The rest will fund Main-Dempster Mile programs and events.

Popular artist Amanda Evanston has donated five original works of art for auction. Each numbered work is covered with hearts in Amanda's distinctive style, and say "I love Evanston" (some also have an MDM easter egg for hyper-locals :)

About the artwork: In the beginning, Amanda worked on a massive cloth (see https://www.instagram.com/p/CZQKy6KO_DM/) that was then divided into pieces. Each piece was then embellished with final touches.

Our greatest thanks to Amanda for her time, effort, generosity and neighborly spirit with this donation. Read more about Amanda, take a class, or purchase her art at http://www.amandaevanston.com/
