Many cultural institutions, including the Field, depend on people visiting our public spaces every day. While we’re closed, we’ll continue sharing great stories and activities online. If you learn something new or get a moment of joy out of what we’re sharing, we’re grateful for a donation of any amount in support of our work and mission. A “like” or share brightens our day as well. We're grateful you're a part of the Field community.
