Sponsored by the College of Agricultural Sciences, Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon
Intricate agrarian heritages, including agriculture practiced by Native Americans for centuries and influences from colonist and immigrant settlers, evolved into the practices and sciences of our country’s modern agriculture. It involves cultivating food and fiber, and managing related natural resources. To celebrate and be inspired by American agriculture, its heritage, and evolution, the College of Agricultural Sciences, Oregon State University, is organizing its 34th annual Art About Agriculture art exhibition this year, embracing artistic perspectives on the theme, Agriculture of the American Landscape.
This year’s exhibition will present works of art by visual artists who were invited by the College based on nominations from a committee of art specialists. The committee sought artist nominees who consider landscapes of working agricultural fields and pasturelands as the primary content in their works of art, including food systems and plant-based fiber production and expressed in the choice of subject matter, in the use of materials, or both.
