OPEN FIELD COLLECTIVE brings engaging contemporary art to public streets in Toronto. Erika James and Scott McDermids’ mandate is to create innovative public spaces for artists to exhibit their artwork. We are currently operating 6 Street Projects exhibition sights in Toronto. The STREET PROJECTS exhibitions change every six weeks, giving the surrounding community an opportunity to be introduced to a wide range of artists and visual art program.
KING ST. PILOT PROJECT – The City of Toronto – Open field Collective – 5 to 8 exhibition galleries placed along King St. in the street sitting areas. Nov. 16, 2018 to October 1, 2019.
LANEWAY LIGHT UP – 38 artists – 40 murals – 1 lane-way – 1 weekend! A partnership – StreetARToronto – KJ Bit Collective – Open Field Collective – Supported by City of Toronto, and through Toronto Arts Council Strategic Funding. The garage doors and wall murals were completed September 15 and 16, 2018. The Laneway is between Euclid/ Palmerston – College/ Dundas.
Our STREET PROJECT GALLERIES are mobile! Movable bases allow us to present the art anywhere. In 2016, Waterfront Toronto funded the presentation of 5 Open Field galleries in the Corktown Commons, Toronto. The gallery boxes were dispersed along the winding trails inside the park.
