THE BARN  marks the third component of  LAND&[email protected]: A 4 SEASON PROJECT, a collaboration between MARC and WSG to develop and realize land art and land use projects through the four seasons of the year, with the primary focus on farming and agricultural issues. The collaboration seeks to generate a diverse and multilayered program throughout the year that examines farming, agricultural themes in today’s societal landscape, and environmental issues through collaborative and participatory creative projects with visitors, volunteers, members, and communities.

THE BARN takes place in the horse barn at the Baltimore County Agricultural Center’s property that will be transformed into a micro-gallery and art laboratory during the winter season. Artist teams collaborated to incorporate interdisciplinary objectives and relate to the concept of the barn itself in regard to structure, architecture, anthropology (domestication), history, storytelling agriculture, and other disciplines.

ABOUT THE SITE This 149-acre Piedmont farm located in central Baltimore County was once part of a larger 400-acre grain and horse farm dating from the 1700s. Its main homestead was built in the 1800s. While most of the homestead is gone today, the land remains agriculturally preserved as a living outdoor classroom designed to allow the public unfettered access to the many different aspects of agriculture, and provide farmers the opportunity to see innovative practices in a real-world setting.

The Farm features conventional crops, experimental plots, apiculture, demonstration gardens, historic farm buildings, pastures, forests, wetlands, meadows, and breathtakingly beautiful scenic vistas. This is a working demonstration farm. On any given day visitors  may catch fields being planted or harvested, the bees being tended, or any number of activities that keep a farm productive.
