Ballad of the Farm: Then, Now, Tomorrow

Eleven artists have created 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 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 opening reception is May 23 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm at the museum.
