Evanston History Center (EHC) and the Levy Senior Center Foundation are co-hosting two special 90-minute bus tours October 17 and November 14 to see Evanston as painted by acclaimed artist, Walter Burt Adams. Eden Juron Pearlman, executive director of the EHC, will share her insights about the artist as we tour the iconic spots depicted from the 1930s through the 1970s. We’ll discover the beauty Adams found in everyday scenes and compare historic and contemporary views.
