FARM/ART DTOUR RETURNS SEPT 26 - OCT 4
The Farm/Art DTour is a free, self-guided, 50+ mile agri/cultural excursion through the scenic working farmlands of rural Sauk County. Celebrating its eighth year, the 2020 DTour moves to southern Sauk County with trailheads in Plain and Sauk City. The new route allows us to collaborate with new partners, align with existing assets such as Badger Prairie and the Great Sauk State Trail, and highlight the unique beauty and diverse cultures of the Driftless Region. Punctuated by large-scale artworks, local food markets, roadside poetry (Burma Shave format), and educational Field Notes, the 2020 DTour offers festivity and fresh air for all ages with social distancing built in.
You’ll wander through small towns, country churchyards, and a changing agricultural landscape where artists explore the timeless connections between land and people; farmers perform fundamental and inspiring work; and where lines that can sometimes separate, converge or are happily blurred.
Plan to spend a day or two on this magical mystery tour—a little bit of Kansas, a little bit of Oz—plus cows! Maps will be available at several sites in September.
