Call for Artists for the 2013 Farm/Art DTour | Where artists explore the timeless connection between land and people

The Farm/Art DTour is a fifty-mile self-guided tour through the beautiful working lands of Sauk County, Wisconsin punctuated by Art Works (large-scale temporary art installations), Roadside Culture Stands (artist-built mobile farm stands), Field Notes (rural culture education sites), Pasture Performances, and more.

The DTour is part of Fermentation Fest - A Live Culture Convergence, 10 days of workshops, tastings, demonstrations, and art events celebrating food, farming, and fermentation – in all its forms. This project, supported in part through the NEA and ArtPlace, has received national attention and last year attracted over 8,000 people. The Wormfarm Institute, creator and host of the DTour, is an award-winning organization with the mission to integrate culture and agriculture.

The Wormfarm will commission 6-8 Art Works to be installed on land along the 50 mile DTour route. The work will be on view from October 4-13, 2013. We are seeking artists (individuals or teams) who are interested in engaging with agricultural landscape, the farmers, landowners, and surrounding communities. This is an opportunity to contribute to a unique and exciting new project with a growing reputation for its innovative approach to “creative placemaking”.


Submission Deadline: March 22
