Ballad of the Farm: Then, Now, Tomorrow
Eleven artists are now creating new works of art for Ballad of the Farm: Then, Now, Tomorrow. Support this innovative project by adopting an artist or becoming a featured sponsor.
Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art has selected eleven artists from a six-state region to be part of a collaborative art exhibition entitled Ballad of the Farm: Then, Now, Tomorrow. This multi-artist project combines crowd-sourced historic farm photographs from early to mid-1900s with contemporary artworks inspired by the photographs. The exhibition is set to open May 13, 2015.
This project is supported in part by an award from Mid-America Arts Alliance, the National Endowment for the Arts, Nebraska Arts Council, and foundations, corporations, and individuals throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas. Peter Kiewit Foundation has provided generous support for this project as a key sponsor.
Your support is needed to match the grant funds awarded. If you’re interested in adopting an artist or becoming a featured sponsor contact Director Carol Kobza at [email protected].
Photographs gathered from people with ties to the farm and the stories surrounding them will inspire new works of art for the exhibition by the artists selected. Each artist will choose photographs from among those submitted and which inspire them to create new works of art that depict farm life as it once was, as it is now, and as it might be in the future.
