No better wear to spend an Autumn day in Wisconsin that the self-guided 50-mile Farm d’Art Tour through Sauk County to see the improvisational, temporary art. It’s all part of the annual Fermentation Fest. There’s one day left, that being Sunday 10-04-2020.
Our new logo is taken from that tour.
And my favorite, an installment of hundreds of broken, but clean egg shells placed on the floor in seemingly random arrangements in a church abandoned in 1958. That is the Harrisburg First Evangelical & Reform Church, built in 1867. The work is by one Harmut Ringle, a German native now living in Wisconsin Dells.
It’s entitled “The Power of Fragility” and it does make one wonder — as good art does — about the lives of the people who worshiped at that church for 90+ years and what happened to them. Did they lead prosperous and happy lives? Come to grief?
It’s on County Hwy B between the village of Plain and Sauk City.
