EQUINOX – CYCLES IN NATURE marks the second of four calls for LAND&[email protected]: A 4 SEASON PROJECT, a collaboration between MARC and WSG to develop and realize land art and land use projects through the four seasons of the year, with the primary focus on farming and agricultural issues. The collaboration seeks to generate a diverse and multilayered program throughout the year that examines farming, agricultural themes in today’s societal landscape, and environmental issues through collaborative and participatory creative projects with visitors, volunteers, members, and communities.
We are proud to announce a call for proposals for land art that approaches agricultural practices with the theme of cycles in nature, farming, and the cosmos. The art project will coincide with the equinox (September 22, 2015). The proposed projects will be time based, created with the intent for the installation to change or evolve over time. The work can be created in collaboration with the community, and can include performance and other duration-based practices.
The Maryland Agricultural Resource Council (MARC) is the nonprofit arm of the facility responsible for developing the programs and projects that utilize the Farm Park as an outdoor classroom, providing the public with (a) unfettered access to agricultural endeavors, (b) information critical for educating the public about the importance of agriculture, (c) demonstrations of innovative agricultural practices, and (d) the assistance needed to grow the next generation of farmers.
MARC’s Arts on the Farm Program is a multi-faceted, ongoing exploration of the the intersection of arts and agriculture.
