Located in the pine-covered sand hills of Southwest Georgia, the world famous art site known as Pasaquan will be open to the public on Saturday, July 6 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Pasaquan is open to the public on the first Saturday of each month through November. Other dates are August 3, September 7, October 5 and November 2-3 (Artists for Pasaquan Festival). Pasaquan and its eccentric creator, Eddie Owens Martin (ST. EOM), have been featured in dozens of local, regional, and national publications and television shows, including the New York Times, Smithsonian Magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, NPR and many others. The complex consists of six unique buildings, all interconnected by a series of painted masonry walls, colorful concrete sculptures, and an assortment of interesting landscape elements and plantings. Pasaquan is an amazing example of individual creativity and a personal vision that is virtually unmatched in its scope and concept anywhere else in the world. Cameras and picnic baskets are welcome. Admission is $5 per person. Children 6 and younger are free. The site is located near Buena Vista, Georgia. For directions and further information, visitwww.pasaquan.com.
