Farm2Art Programming at the Clemmons Family Farm
Beginning in 2017, indoor and outdoor multi-cultural events at the historic Barn House will feature African-American diaspora and multicultural performance arts, visual arts, lectures, presentations and retreats-- by and for artists, photographers, writers and musicians. We prioritize showcasing the creative and scholarly work of exceptional African-American and African artists or other artists whose work celebrates the African diaspora.

All rooms on the main floor and upper level feature beautiful exposed wood beams that are hand-hewn and hundreds of years old. Video by Jay Bouey.

Above: This 5-minute multi-media slideshow overview of present and future artistic works at the Clemmons Family Farm was part of our submissions to ArtPlace America's 2017 National Creative Placemaking Fund grant competition. The Clemmons Family Farm and its partners' A Sense of Place project was one of 23 projects that won the competition among nearly 1000 applicants nation-wide. This prestigious grant was awarded in January 2018 and will run through June 2020 to rapidly enhance our African-American and African diaspora arts and culture programming.
