The Art Farm

From Cody Joseph Painter

I'm raising funds to build a unique retreat for art in Mexico with a farm, studio gallery & guest lodgings & many large-scale interactive sculptures that will inspire visitors to create lives full of purpose & joy.

It is clear to me, and surely to many, that the modern world can be incredibly frustrating & isolating. It can be hard to find stability & joy in the daily grind, let alone meaning & purpose. I have long been pondering what core ideals will bring myself & others greater happiness in our lives. I have learned that when we have distance from our situation, we find crucial perspective. So part of this exploration of happiness has been to travel & connect with as many different kinds of people as possible. These experiences have profoundly impacted my perspective on what is possible in this life. And they have led me to my purpose, which is to hold the space for others to do that internal investigative work: to dream about how good life can be & bring those dreams into reality.

When we take the time to clarify our emotional & physical needs, we can make the important changes necessary in our lives to find true authentic joy. The mission of The Art Farm is to provide experiences that inspire visitors to create more purpose-driven realities full of love & connection.

To that end, I’ve developed a set of goals that I believe will help people live happier lives. (See the image above for the full list)

The Art Farm will provide the creative & intellectual space for visitors to do this crucial work to define their intentions & purpose through a series of large-scale interactive community artworks. Visitors will be encouraged to explore the land & these structures in whichever manner feels right for their growth needs. I truly believe this retreat center will help people from all around the world to find greater joy & meaning.

Thank you so much for supporting my vision to create a unique home for creativity & community building.

We look forward to seeing you on the farm!
