Art in the Time of Corona Interview Series
w Evanston Made Members
The "Art in the Time of Corona" interview series features interviews Evanston Made members about the projects that have come to life during the Covid-19 outbreak.
Listen to my conversation with Nature Evangelist Rachel Rosner who worked with a team of Evanston Made members to create the Evanston Loves Nature coloring book. This project has been in production for quite some time, but got pushed up and put online, just in time to get kids busy with art projects they can do from their windows while indoors and home from school.
This coloring book, along with several other Earth Month events, provides Rachel the platform she needs to help people learn to love and care for the environment.
In working with Evanston Made Co-Director Liz Cramer, and artists Ron Cramer, Shruti Vijay, Mardy Sears, Lisa Haskin and Jane Sloss, Rachel was able to provide kids ages 4-18yo with activities to help them engage with Evanston green spaces.
Rachel is a member of Citizens Greener Evanston, "(CGE) works to make Evanston a more environmentally just, sustainable, and resilient community. Our vision is to have Evanston recognized as one of the most environmentally sustainable cities in the country."
We are grateful for Rachel and the team of creatives who made this coloring book happen! The coloring book is available for download at evanstonmade.org/evanston-loves-nature-coloring-book/
This coloring book is part of Art for Earth Month, just one of many activities and events planned in Evanston to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day! Learn more at evanstonmade.org/art-for-the-earth/
