The City of Evanston is home to a diverse array of theatre, dance, performance and music companies. Commissioned by the City, HBRA and our collaborators undertook a National Endowment for the Arts grant-funded study to explore the possibility of creating new performing arts venues in Downtown Evanston, providing programming, property analysis, conceptual designs for four different venues and a financial and action plan to describe a path toward accomplishing the proposed objectives.
