Plaines Projects needs your help on version


The Plaines Project, in conjunction with Version Fest '08 DARK MATTER, is excited to present:


Taking place the final weekend of April, The Field Of Dreams show will be a collaborative art event and action to celebrate the creative appropriation of the wasted and dead space of Chicago's post-industrial landscape.

We are looking for artists of of all mediums and disciplines to create work which will be installed in a 117,000 sq ft vacant lot in East Pilsen. Our objective is to reactivate and rejuvenate this dead space by transforming it into a public sculpture garden and autonomous art zone.

Installation begins the evening of Friday 4/25 and the show will open with a BBQ potluck celebration on Sunday 4/27 at 2:00pm in the Field Of Dreams.

Anyone and everyone is encouraged to participate in this event. The more people who participate, the more amazing the show will be.

The Field of dreams is located at the intersection of 21st st. and Jefferson. Its pretty much impossible to miss.

Art can be dropped off at the Plaines Project, or anonymously installed in the field itself. The Plaines Project will not publish or disclose the names of participating artists under any circumstances.

Art that is installed in the Field Of Dreams will be left up permanently unless it is taken down by the artists who create it. Since the Field of Dreams is open to the public and subject to the forces of nature, we cannot guarantee the survival of every piece of art, but we enthusiastically embrace the fact that the deterioration of the art once it is installed is an integral part of its existence in the Field Of Dreams.
