The Deerfield Fine Arts Commission’s new Public Art Program has placed 24 pieces of art on display in public buildings throughout the Village.
If a selected piece or artist has caught your eye, please feel free to reach out to the artist using the contact information provided next to each piece. Many of the artists would welcome the opportunity to show you their work and discuss purchase.
The primary goal of the Deerfield Public Art Program is to publicly display works of art created by local, regional, national and international artists. The art is displayed for 1 year in public buildings and new pieces are selected each year.
Artists who are professional and of serious intent
Artists working in any permanent media
Art students working with practicing artists/teachers may be considered
Artists must have knowledge of public art. While previous experience in public art is not required, artists should be knowledgeable of materials, techniques, and public art processes.
Appropriateness of an artist’s work for public display. (Appropriateness in terms of scale, material, content and placement).
All selected artwork must be delivered to the village “ready-to-hang” for immediate display. Any pieces that arrive needing framing or additional assembly will not be included in the display program and will be returned to the artist.
