REEDSBURG, WI⸺Wormfarm Institute announced that seven artists have been commissioned to create new artworks for its biennial Farm/Art DTour excursion through rural Sauk County, Wisconsin. The artists⸺Austen Camille, Rosalynn Gingerich, Sarah Kavage, Bill Mitchell, Denise Rolland Troyer, Christopher Sweet, and W. Scott Trimble⸺include both local and national artists who were selected by a jury from a pool of more than 100 applicants following a widespread call for proposals. Working in a range of media and artistic traditions, the artists will receive funding ranging from $5,000-$10,000 to create large-scale, site-responsive artworks which will be temporarily installed in working farm fields along the fifty-mile DTour route. Some installations will be developed in partnership with area farmers and landowners, an example of Wormfarm’s longstanding tradition of creating cross-sector collaboration to help build a more sustainable future for agriculture and the arts.
