The Wormfarm Institute is pleased to announce a national call for artist proposals for its biennial Farm/Art DTour returning October 1-10, 2022 to Sauk County, Wisconsin located on the edge of the famed Driftless Region. This agri/cultural excursion is a self-guided drive through 50 miles of Sauk County’s scenic, winding roads and working lands punctuated by temporary site-responsive artworks, pasture performances, roadside poetry, educational Field Notes, local food markets, and more. Year after year, 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.
Up to ten artists will be commissioned to create large-scale, outdoor projects that will be temporarily installed at various locations along the DTour route. The request for proposals invites artists from all backgrounds and locations to apply, including those who are formally trained and those who are self-taught. Proposals will be reviewed by a jury and DTour artists will be selected through a two-step process. The deadline to apply is February 15, 2022.
