Since its beginnings, Art in the Barn has had one core mission: to provide a venue and an audience for artists to share their work. In that time, the 1870’s restored barn where the event takes place has played host to bands from as far away as the Netherlands and artists from as nearby as Paoli.
Art in the Barn provides a casual intimate atmosphere for performers and artists as well as its audience, who can find seats among the barn’s hay bales on beautiful summer evenings. The concerts and exhibits attract art and music lovers of all ages, contributing to a warm, fun, family friendly and unique atmosphere that makes the evening special for all.
Art in the Barn is the nonprofit venture of Anne and Bill Conzemius, who bought the property about 5 miles south of Madison, and then converted its 1870's barn into a performance space for both local and international musicians.
"All the people who help pull this together do it in their spare time making Art in the Barn a true labor of love. It is that passion for the venue, the artists and musicians that has kept us going. Watching people enjoy great music in this casual setting and getting a chance to meet the talented artists and musicians keeps us and our audience dedicated to this event.” said Anne Conzemius.
