Fine Arts Commission Public Art Open House - Thursday, September 19

The Deerfield Fine Arts Commission will host a community open house to showcase the 23 pieces selected for the sixth year of the Deerfield Public Art Program before they are put on display throughout the Village.

The event will be held in the Deerfield Public Library, 920 Waukegan Road, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, September 19, and will feature many of the artists who created this year’s pieces. Light refreshments will be served.

Multiple media are featured in this year’s selections. Artists from Deerfield include Jill Dorfman, Susan Mason, Matt Plofsky, Linda Trytek and Susan Willis. Other artists include Janet Austin of Evanston, Elisa Boughner of Glenview, Vincent Caranchini of Flagstaff, Ariz., Emily Casella of Valparaiso, Ind., Louis Eliopoulos of Morton Grove, Susan Harrold of Oak Park, Robert Krawczyk of Batavia, Maximino Mendez of Palatine, Liz Meyer of Highland Park, Jim Parks of Evanston, David Reninger of Chicago and Fern Shaffer of Chicago. The artists will discuss their work and answer questions from the public in a new “Meet the Artist” forum at the open house.

The specific artwork selected for display were chosen from submissions by a very talented pool of artists and were reviewed via jury process. The Fine Arts Commission is responsible for reviewing artwork submissions and making a final recommendation. The artists have agreed to loan their works of art for public display for up to one year.

Pieces from last year’s Public Art Program will remain on display until the open house.

For more information, contact the Village Manager’s Office at 847.719.7400.
