LINCOLN, NE.-The Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery presents Art Farm @ Sheldon, on view January 04, 2008 thru April 27, 2008. This exhibition concerns the complex interrelationship of art, landscape and architecture in a rural context. Led by Jeffery L. Day, an associate professor in the College of Architecture at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the show focuses on design proposals for the development of Art Farm, a non-profit art residency program situated on a forty-acre working farm in Marquette, Nebraska.

Work on display includes architectural models, renderings, diagrams and drawings as well as a series of rotating installations by artists associated with Art Farm. In addition, the exhibition features the installation in the Sheldon Great Hall of an old farm building from Art Farm that has been repurposed as a video lounge with a modern interior.

The combined focus areas of architectural and landscape design, art practice, and the rural Nebraska environment suggest that the exhibition would appeal to a wide variety of people.

The exhibition demonstrates alternatives to the predominant land uses found in the Great Plains and it asks the question, "Can art form the basis of a post-agricultural landscape?"

A number of events and programs are scheduled in connection with Art Farm @ Sheldon.
