A Call for Art, Performance and Farming!

Dear All,

The farmer's exhibition 'For Farm Sake' is approaching, if interested please read the information below:

To honor local organizations, individuals and artists interested in agriculture, farming, and working with available resources; the detroit contemporary will present For Farm Sake, a farmer's exhibition on October 13th, 2012. We will highlight many of the urban farming organizations, initiatives and individuals that have motivated the growth of this great movement amongst a display of artists inspired by agriculture. We formally invite you to take part in this illustrious event and hope to hear from you soon. 

If you are interested in participating or have any further questions, please email the detroit contemporary's Director of Agriculture: no later than September 15th, 2012

This will not be a normal art show: 'For Farm Sake' will be ground breaking! By gathering artists and farmers under the same roof, the show will be an inspiration for both. All forms of art and performance are welcome, all forms of gardening and farming are welcome. This is a free event open to all ages. Please forward this invitation to those that may be interested.

". . . man never regards what he possesses as so much his own, as what he does; and the labourer who tends a garden is perhaps in a true sense its owner, than the listless voluptuary who enjoys its fruits. . . . In view of this consideration, it seems as if all peasants and craftsmen might be elevated into artists; that is, men who love their labour for its own sake, improve it by their own plastic genius and inventive skill, and thereby cultivate their intellect, ennoble their character, and exalt and refine their pleasures."
-Alexander von Humboldt
