About Woodfield

Woodfield Microhood is a collective of neighbors advancing their commons through creative placemaking, community development, arts, and culture. The Microhood is an organically-structured, grassroots community initiative. Their purpose is to create an inclusive space where the ethos reflects connectivity and collaboration and neighbors feel safe, celebrated, and inspired.

 

The 26th and Olive Mural

The idea for the Woodfield Microhood began in 2015 surrounding the 26th and Olive Intersections Mural designed by local resident Erik Steiner. Erik was motivated to create a project that would generate a stronger sense of neighborhood identity, foster relationships, bridge intergenerational gaps between community members, and cultivate a common goal.

 

The collective space on 26th and Olive contains a small art gallery, lending library, outdoor sculptures, mosaic walkway and a landscaped seating area. The Woodfield Microhood has multiple community engagement opportunities throughout the year, which include apple pressing, holiday caroling, open studio tours and art creation workshops. The initiative continues to grow and flourish.

Woodfield is a collective of neighbors advancing their commons through creative placemaking, community development, arts, and culture. We strive to create an inclusive environment and cultivate feelings of collaboration, commonality, hope, and respect.
