Pasaquan hosts artists’ weekend

BUENA VISTA — BUENA VISTA — The Pasaquan Preservation Society announces Artists for Pasaquan Weekend on November 3 and 4, 2012. The event will include site tours, musical performances, dance demonstrations, food vendors, and an art show and sale featuring the works of many regional artists.

Artists for Pasaquan allows artists and musicians to demonstrate their belief in the importance of preserving Pasaquan, while offering visitors one last chance to see this world-renowned art site before it closes for the winter. Pasaquan and its eccentric creator, Eddie Owens Martin, a.k.a. ST.EOM, have been featured in dozens of local, regional, and national publications and television shows, including the New York Times, NPR, Smithsonian Magazine, and the San Francisco Chronicle.

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. BBQ chicken will be available for purchase. The site is located near Buena Vista, Georgia. For directions and further information, visit Admission to Artists for Pasaquan is $5 per person, free for kids 6 & under. Cash only, please. All proceeds go to the preservation of Pasaquan.
