Farm/Art DTour Returns Oct 1-10, 2022

Save the date for the Farm/Art DTour, returning to next year’s Fermentation Fest on October 1-10, 2022. Every other year, site-responsive artworks and agri/cultural attractions punctuate this self-guided drive through 50 miles of Wisconsin’s Driftless Region. From small country churchyards to grazing cows to giant puppets to award-winning cheese factories, you never know what you’ll find around the next bend in the road. Join thousands of rural residents and urban visitors next fall and discover the beauty and rich assets of the region. Read more about Sauk County’s largest homegrown agritourism event.

A pause

The Artist Residency Program has run continuously for over 20 years (including through the ongoing pandemic) and served hundreds of artists. It has been significant in influencing and inspiring a range of other Wormfarm initiatives, and critically important in developing staff and collaborators.

For 2022, we have decided to take a step back from operating the program as it has been. This growing season, we will not solicit or review applications from an open call. Instead we will reach out to past resident artists who might wish to return to Wormfarm either singly or part of a creative cohort. We look forward to exploring what grows from this new model and appreciate your continued interest in this foundational program.
