 WHAT IS THE ART & AG PROJECT?

The Art & Ag Project cultivates a dialogue between artists, farmers, and the community to raise awareness of the importance of preserving farmlands and the visual arts in Yolo County.  Art and Ag has been nationally recognized by the National Endowment of the Arts as a model program for "creative placemaking" - and has earned an ArtPlace grant for using the arts to "increase community vibrancy".
