LAKE FOREST, ILLINOIS
Created in the fall of 2020, Drawing Fields was conceptualized for a moment in time when we can’t physically gather. The 2020 Ragdale Ring project “Drawing Fields” - a temporary garden theatre produced by Outpost Office on architect Howard Van Doren Shaw’s former estate north of Chicago. This project made it possible for the host of art alumni across the globe to experience the Ragdale Ring for the first time. This story was created to inspire other artists, architects, and designers to consider how we embrace present-day concerns of physicality, public space, and engagement.
