Art on the Farm: Exploring the Intersection of Art and Agriculture
“Art and agriculture, a perfect match – it makes great sense! Both are creative enterprises, both result in nourishment: one for the body and one for the soul – but if both are done to the utmost, than art and agriculture can offer nourishment to body and soul!” – John Shipman, Director of the University of Maryland’s Art Gallery
Agriculture has inspired artists since the Mesolithic Era when nomadic tribes stopped moving and began to plant crops and raise domesticated animals. Growing crops in rows influenced design patterns found in weavings, on pottery, and amongst jewelry. From crude scratchings on the interior walls of caves to giant Italian frescoes, agriculture and art have played an important and complementary role in the lives of humans.
