Again this year, Evanston joins the Illinois Arts Council in recognizing October as Arts & Humanities Month, a statewide celebration encouraging all residents to establish, deepen, and expand our relationships with the arts and humanities.

The month will focus attention Evanston’s cultural resources and increase public awareness of the arts.

A kick-off celebration for Arts & Humanities Month will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. tonight, at Design Within Reach, 1710 Sherman Ave. Musical entertainment will be provided by The Blue Dragons. Admission is free.
