Growing with Brookfield 

Rain Barrel Exhibit Summer 2024

We are looking for sponsors for our artists who will paint the 10 available rain barrels. These will then be on display throughout Brookfield, near their sponsoring business, from June - September. The sponsor and matched artist will coordinate the design and plan. The barrels are due in April. The rain barrel will be displayed outside the sponsoring business location.

3rd Thursdays

About us

Started in 2021 when Shannon and Terri realized the artist community they were looking for could be built. We can't help but create & make -- we want a community that nurtures that . . . so here we are - building what we have been looking for. 

Our goal with this group is to bring the artists together in order to help foster a community of growth. Create a space to share knowledge and challenges, collaborate and uplift. In addition, we strive to bring more authentic and cool art to Brookfield. 

The Brookfield Artist Collective is a volunteer run organization. If you are interested in helping out you can email us for information.
