Jun 2nd 2018

We are pleased to announce our new visiting artist program. Through this annual program we will partner with a local artist who will create new work inspired by the museum – its story, its collection – and display this new work in the museum. Our inaugural artist is Photographer Vanessa Filley and she will working at the house starting this month. We will be showing her work (in progress) starting Saturday, June 2nd with an open studio as part of Evanston Made from 12-5 pm. Her work will be on display and viewable throughout the summer when the museum is open for tours (Sundays 1-4 pm) and select special dates to be announced.

Vanessa Filley is a fine art photographer whose current work focuses on women’s organizing movements. While in residence at the FWHM she will be working on a project that imagines a web of connections bridging the perseverance of women organizing throughout history to women organizing today. Come see what she creates!
