The Deerfield Fine Arts Commission’s Public Art Program has 16 pieces of art on display in public buildings throughout the Village this year.
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.

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.
For the second year the program is looking for outdoor sculpture for a small park located in the center of downtown Deerfield at the northeast corner of Deerfield Road and Waukegan Road. The suggested size is up to 20’ tall by 10’ diameter with appropriate clearance from sharps for walkers. The Village will work with artists for this space to coordinate delivery and placement.
