After you’ve checked out the Kerry James Marshall exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Master Drawings at the Art Institute of Chicago, there is another exhibit you won’t 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 Tuesday, September 20 to showcase the 16 pieces selected for the 2016 Deerfield Public Art Program before they are put on display throughout the Village. 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, Sara Kenward, Wayne Rhodes, Kris Van Stockum, Barbara Wagner, Penny Weinberg, and Susan Willis. Other artists include Suzette Bross of Chicago, Neil Cohen of Buffalo Grove, and Janet Poppe of Highland Park.
The specific artwork selected for display were chosen from submissions by a very talented pool of artists and were reviewed via jury process. The artists have agreed to loan their works of art for public display for up to one year.
