Brief Description

The Farm/Art DTour is a 50+-mile self-guided tour through the beautiful working lands of Sauk County, Wisconsin punctuated by Art Works (large-scale temporary art installations), Pasture Performances, PassWords (roadside poetry) Field Notes (interpretive signage), and more. The DTour is part of Fermentation Fest – A Live Culture Convergence, 10 days of classes, tastings, and art events celebrating live culture – in all its forms. Wormfarm will commission 6-8 original Art Works to be installed along the DTour route. The work will be on public view from October 5-14, 2018. We are seeking artists (individuals or teams) who are interested in creating site-responsive work and 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 and effective approach to “creative placemaking.”
