Fine Arts Commission Call for Artists
The Village of Deerfield is soliciting artwork loans from artists as part of the fifth year of the Deerfield Public Art Program. Artists must be willing to loan works of art for public display for up to one year. The Deerfield Fine Arts Commission will review artwork proposals submitted by artists interested in having their works displayed in the community.
The program is soliciting paintings, murals, drawings and other pieces to be displayed in Village Hall, the Public Works Facility, Deerfield Park District facilities, the Deerfield Public Library and other government buildings.
The art is displayed for one year in public buildings, and new pieces are selected each year. Applications for the next year of the program are now available online.
The Deerfield Fine Arts Commission’s Public Art Program has placed nearly 100 pieces of art on display in public buildings over the years.
The Deerfield Public Art Program is open to all visual artists who meet the following:
- 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 (in terms of scale, material, content and placement).
- All selected artwork must be delivered to the Village “ready-to-hang” for immediate display.
Artists may submit up to three pieces of art for consideration. Click here to submit online.
