Open to artists nationally
Open to artists statewide
Paid opportunity ($5,000-$10,000)
Up to 10 artists will be selected to create large-scale temporary installations in farm fields in rural Wisconsin. Apply by February 12, 2024.
Described as an “agri/cultural excursion,” the Farm/Art DTour will run from October 5–14, 2024.
The Farm/Art DTour is a self-guided drive through 50 miles of Sauk County, Wisconsin, located on the edge of the famed Driftless Area. Travelers experience scenic, winding roads and working farmlands punctuated by temporary site-responsive artworks, pasture performances, roadside poetry, educational Field Notes, local food markets, and more. The DTour draws thousands of visitors from the region and across the country with its invitation to experience a landscape and rural communities where farming plays a central, though changing, role.
Wormfarm Institute will commission up to 10 artists to create large-scale, outdoor projects that will be temporarily installed in farm fields at various locations along the DTour route. Artists from all backgrounds and locations are invited to apply, including those who are formally trained and those who are self-taught. Finalists will receive a stipend to revise their proposals and selected artists will receive $5,000 to 10,000 to realize their work.
