About This 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.

Thank yous
