 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.  Each month artists can visit a different farm in Yolo County to create a work of art on site including but not limited to plein air painting & photography.  Art & Ag has been nationally recognized by the National Endowment of the Arts as a model program for "creative placemaking".

Join our Mailing List at [email protected] to receive a monthly farm invitation which will include farm location, address, directions and requires artist RSVP
