After you’ve checked out the Whistler/Roussel exhibit at the Art Institute, and the Freedom Principle exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art, there is another hot art show you will not want to miss. Mark your calendar, because it is one night only – at the Deerfield Public Library!
The Deerfield Fine Arts Commission will host a community open house on Thursday, September 17, to showcase the 23 pieces selected for the second year of the Deerfield Public Art Program. The event will be held in the Library from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
Multiple media are featured in this year’s selections. Artists from Deerfield include Caren Kaplan, Anne Kleinerman, Rita Price, Wayne Rhodes, Kris Van Stockum, Linda Trytek, Barbara Wagner, Penny Weinberg, Susan Willis and Sherri Wolfe. Other artists include Janet Austin of Evanston, Molly Cranch of Chicago, and Richard Cody Janes of Stillman Valley.
Pieces from the first year of the Public Art Program will remain on display until the open house. To learn more about these pieces and the artists, take an online tour of Deerfield’s public art.
