Historic Artists' Homes & Studios Virtual Road Trip: Pasaquan
The Historic Artist Homes & Studios Virtual Road Trip is BACK in 2022! Join us to explore the unique creative spaces and art-making practices of six American artists.

Fueled by the James Castle House in Boise, Idaho, and the Historic Artists' Homes and Studios (HAHS) program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this six-part, monthly series ventures deep into the museums, homes, and preserved spaces that nurtured the creation of thousands of artworks.

Traveling from West Palm Beach, Florida, to Buena Vista, Georgia, as the third stop of this six-part virtual road trip, we’ll investigate self-taught artist Eddie Owens Martin and his visionary art environment known as Pasaquan. For over 30 years, Martin (also known as St. EOM) constructed several vibrant structures on site, including more than 900 feet of elaborately painted masonry walls. As we explore Pasaquan’s vibrant and immersive landscape, we’ll dive into St. EOM’s artistic practice and creative legacy.

This free, one-hour event will take place via ZOOM on June 9, 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT. One registration is needed per household. Live American Sign Language (ASL) will be provided.

Eddie Owens Martin, a self-taught Southern artist, drew inspiration from many colorful cultures to develop the 7-acre, internationally recognized visionary art environment known as Pasaquan in Buena Vista, Georgia. In 2016, Columbus State University (CSU) became stewards of Pasaquan and works to preserve, maintain, provide access to, and assist in the interpretation of the site. Visitors are offered a unique insight into the intuitive, artistic process behind Pasaquan through diverse programming, interdisciplinary workshops, lectures, seminars, retreats, and performances.
