COME TO YOUR SENSES: Travel the DTour from October 1-10, 2022

This fall, join us for the Farm/Art DTour: a self-guided excursion through 50 miles of scenic farmland in rural Sauk County, with trailheads in Plain and Sauk City, WI. See artwork inspired by the land, hear songbirds and pasture performances, smell fresh cut hay and campfires, discover a country churchyard or roadside poetry around the next bend in the road, and enjoy an abundance of local food & beverages.

Pick up the DTour Map (starting in September) and join thousands of fellow wanderers as we come to our senses and celebrate live culture in all its forms. Subscribe to our newsletter for all the DTails (scroll down).

The 2022 DTour Artists are official!

Seven artists have been commissioned to create new artworks for the 2022 DTour (October 1-10). The artists: Austen Camille, Rosalynn Gingerich, Sarah Kavage, Bill Mitchell, Denise Rolland Troyer, Christopher Sweet and W. Scott Trimble were selected by a jury from more than 100 applicants following a widespread call for proposals. Working in a range of media, the artists will install site-responsive artworks in farm fields along the 50-mile route.

This 36-page literary zine of articles, artwork & poetry explores the themes of the 2022 Farm/Art DTour and offers helpful hints for experiencing all the agri/cultural attractions this October:

The Farm/Art DTour has gone from regional novelty to a model for the emerging world of curbside culture. It took the restrictions of a pandemic to show what DTour visitors have known for many years now: the form has wheels. Already there have been drive-by shows staged on the East and West coasts. Having participated in one in LA, I can say that the difference is that of layers, of depth. Viewing art works outdoors is one thing; a DTour through the land and season is an altogether more poignant experience.”

Feed the Starter Culture

Inviting thousands to witness what farmers do every day, and imagine what they might do tomorrow, the DTour supports our region’s heritage, using the arts to spark curiosity about, and investment in, the future of farming and land stewardship. Your generosity supports this work and helps us keep the DTour free for all.
