Current Exhibit

The Northfield (Exhibition) Experience

April 18 – May 12, 2018



Northfield Arts Guild, St. Olaf College and Carleton College present The Northfield Experience. This event is a promenade performance in which the audience will take part in a progressive walking tour that begins at The Grand Event Center, Friday-Sunday, May 4-6, 2018.

The integrated gallery exhibition,The Northfield (Exhibition) Experience offers its own visual journey of both the project, and of the city of Northfield. This exhibition is a reverse documentary of The Northfield Experience performances, as it is collectively documents an event before it has happened. The exhibition includes paintings, photographs, textiles, collage and ceramics from over 30 artists from Northfield and St. Olaf College, and is particularly unique as the work is generated by each artist’s conceptual vision around an arts event before the event occurs.

This exhibition will give viewers a unique entry point into the seven sites being animated as part of The Northfield Experience. As part of the complete experience, viewers are invited to visit the gallery exhibition for differing perspectives both before and after the May 4-6 promenade performances.
