Wanted: Photos for Ballad of the Farm
You are invited to become part of a collaborative exhibition entitled Ballad of the Farm: Then, Now, Tomorrow. Share your historic farm photographs 1900 to mid-1900s by October 1.
Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art invites you to become 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.
Photographs gathered from people with ties to the farm and the stories surrounding them will inspire new works of art for the exhibition by artists from a six-state region. Each artist selected for the exhibition will choose photographs from among those submitted and which inspire them to create three new works of art that depict farm life as it once was, as it is now, and as it might be in the future.
Artists who work in any medium who live in Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas or Texas interested in creating three new works for Ballad of the Farm: Then, Now, Tomorrow are invited to contact museum Director Carol Kobza at [email protected] or call 913.362.4929.
Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art’s mission is to connect people to the land through art. By sponsoring this exhibition the museum sets the stage for an innovative collaboration among farm families, artists, and the museum’s nationwide community of supporters.
Photographs selected to be part of Ballad of the Farm will be protected, displayed and safely returned to the owners in a museum quality frame once the exhibition ends in September 2015. This exhibition also has the potential to tour with other museums beyond September, 2015.
To have your photographs considered for the exhibition, send a scanned image, a photocopy of the image, or a simple photograph taken of the original image to Bone Creek Museum via e-mail, regular mail, or by dropping by the museum at 575 E Street in David City. Original photographs will remain the property of the owner while the reproductions will be kept by the museum for future reference. The owners of the photographs selected for the exhibition will be notified and a request made for the original photograph to be framed and displayed during the duration of the exhibition.
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.
The museum is seeking funding to match the grants already received. Other companies or individuals interested in supporting the development of this project may contact Director Carol Kobza at [email protected].
