About the project

The Marshfield Project is an experimental site dedicated to exhibiting, collaborating, and exploring the art, ideas, and projects from creative individuals who are not artists but have the passion for the creative process.

Commencing in mid-October, the Marshfield Project will inaugurate a series of exhibitions titled: Fire Keepers. This series of exhibitions will focus on showcasing artwork or projects from people in the Chicago land area, whose focus is to create work outside of their daily routine.

Our exhibition space is composed of a 72 square foot exhibition space with the potential use of the front yard as an extension of space for special projects. We are looking to establish a small venue where we can showcase ART in its rawest and true form, without the inhibitions of a conventional gallery space.

The contributions that we are seeking are going towards establishing the Marshfield Project on a professional level. With your support, we can take the necessary steps in making these first series of exhibitions a success, by providing a small budget for publications and other promotional materials, as well as tending to the special needs of each individual.

UPDATE 1: Marshfield Project Funded!!

POSTED on October 03, 2012

We want to express our sincere thanks to everyone who helped us reach our goal. We could not have done with out your contribution. The Marshfield project is well on its way and we are looking forward to opening the doors very soon.  We are not planing the exhibition calendar and we should have an update on that in the next following weeks.

Thank you again,
