The 15th annual Fields Project culminated Sunday with an Art Fair in Oregon's Mix Park.

The Fields Project, a 9-day event, carries the theme "Bringing Art and Agriculture Together". It allows artists to concentrate on their specialty while being inspired by the rural Ogle County countryside and the Rock River Valley.

The Art Fair featured displays from the artists, including the artists from the Eagles Nest Art Group.
