2015 Farm/Art DTour: Call for Artists | Wormfarm Institute is looking for artists interested in engaging with the agricultural landscape to create installations for the 2015 DTour.

The Farm/Art DTour is a fifty-mile self-guided drive 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), Pasture Performances, and more. The DTour is the centerpiece of the 5th annual Fermentation Fest - A Live Culture Convergence, 10 days of classes, tastings, and art events celebrating live culture - in all its forms. This project has been supported in part through the National Endowment for the Arts and ArtPlace America. It has received national attention and in 2014 attracted over 15,000 people. The Wormfarm Institute, creator and host of the DTour, is an award-winning organization with the mission to integrate culture and agriculture.

Wormfarm will commission 5-8 Art Works to be installed on land along the fifty-mile DTour route. The work will be on view from October 2-11, 2015. 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 project with a growing reputation for its innovative approach to creative placemaking.
