Cultivator is an alternative art exhibitions program featuring diverse art forms by emerging, established, and underrepresented artists. Art exhibitions have been shown in Chicago spaces and on Bray Grove Farm, 70 miles southwest of Chicago. Cultivator was founded by Joanne Aono and Brian Leber.
Proposals for our one day farm events will be considered for those who’ve attended our events, enabling them to understand the site and programming. Think outside the gallery white walls and envision your art in a rural farm setting or in our unfinished attic space. Since the farm has a mission to sustainability, organic growing practices, and stewardship, along with respect to nature and animals, we ask that the art not hinder the operations of our farm or cause harm to the land, animals, or buildings.
