The Wormfarm Institute is pleased to announce a national call for artist proposals for its biennial Farm/Art DTour on October 1–10, 2022. Described as an “agri/cultural excursion,” the DTour is a self-guided drive through 50 miles of Sauk County, Wisconsin, located on the edge of the famed Driftless Region. Travelers experience 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 Farm/Art 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.
Wormfarm will commission up to 10 artists 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. The selection criteria includes:
- Artistic excellence
- Visual impact
- Demonstrated ability to realize concept
- Feasibility of project in the context of the larger event
- How the proposal fits within the broader curatorial vision
- Site and/or community responsiveness
Proposals will be reviewed by a jury, which will select 15 finalists for a site visit and meeting with the landowners. Up to 10 DTour artists will be selected from the group of finalists.
Funding support ranges from $2,500 to $10,000 and a stipend is available for finalists. The deadline to apply is February 15, 2022.
