Public Art

Deerfield Public Art Program Open House Sept. 19

The Deerfield Fine Arts Commission will host a community open house to showcase the 24 pieces selected for the fourth 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 Tuesday, 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 Caren Kaplan, Sara Kenward, Mary Longe, Kris Van Stockum, Penny Weinberg, and Susan Willis. Other artists include Sheila Anderson of Belvidere, Ceyda Aykan of Chicago, Emily Clanton of Greenville, S.C., Rosa Cruz of Wauwatosa, Wisc., Matthew Csernansky of Chicago, Charlotte Kaplan of Wilmette, Jim Parks of Evanston, Janet Poppe of Highland Park, Ryan Sandison Montgomery of Austin, Tex., and Barbara Wagner of Northbrook. 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.
