7. Art Farm, Marquette, Nebraska

1411 85 miles from the Center
Art Farm is an internationally known artist residence program, located deep in the fields of Nebraska. Residents spend months at the site creating art that reflects the site and region, or not. At the center of Art Farm is a sculptural and architectural wonder created by Art Farm’s visionary founder and director Ed Dadey, who has been piling barns on top of one another. There is no shortage of abandoned farmsteads in the region, and no doubt some more of them will find their way to Art Farm.
