An Evening with Art Farm Nebraska

February 14, 2016
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Art Farm, http://www.artfarmnebraska.org, is an artist/writer residency program in rural central Nebraska, beginning its twenty-third year of operation in 2016 with a mission supporting artistic vision, which may be impractical, obscure, and independent of commercial recognition—where failing is no less welcomed than succeeding: offering 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.
