Deciding to Sunset: An Announcement from Common Field

Launched in 2015, Common Field - a national network of independent visual arts organizations and organizers that connects, supports, and advocates for the artist-centered field - announced that, “after a comprehensive auditing and strategic visioning process in 2021, Common Field has made the decision to begin an intentional sunsetting process and will close as an organization in December 2022.”

“Having considered a number of paths forward with trusted field colleagues, our primary funder and financial advisors, we believe this decision holds the founding values of the organization most responsibly and addresses all of the complex challenges the organization faces intentionally. Sunsetting this organization is not an easy decision, but it is the responsible one.”
