Art Farm’s mission is to support artistic vision, which may be impractical, obscure, and independent of commercial recognition—where failing is no less welcomed than succeeding. To offer artists, writers, performers, and others: studios, time, and resources for pursuing their range of expression, for experimenting, for developing projects, but most of all, for distilling the promise and potential of their creative enterprise, while working and living in a rural environment.
Art Farm's physical presence is in its buildings and land. More elusive to describe is the ambiancethe subtle influence of the environment's impact on time and space. The sun and stars measure your time, not clock and calendar. Space is shaped by proximity to sound and silence. The sky: your eyes: your ears will fill with the sound and shapes of an incredible number of birds and bugs. And, like it or not, the weather will be your collaborator in all undertakings.

It’s that time of year again at Art Farm and for you to plan attending Art Farm’s Art Harvest 2008. We’ll try our best to make you feel like you just discovered the universe’s missing mass, so mark your calendar now. You’ll get to meet some of the artists and writers in residence, plus see the work of this year’s other artists and, of course, go for a zestful romp through the weeds and grass to see your past 3D favorites in the pasture. There may be poetry readings, performances, music and outdoor movies; we never know until the last minute, so keep checking back for the latest info here and this page, www.artfarmnebraska.org/ArtHarvest2008.html. We hope you can come and make it a
for you and us.
