This piece is an homage to folk artist Eddie Owens Martin’s homestead called Pasaquan, which is a seven acre artscape consisting of six buildings painted with vibrant colors and patterns. Pasaquan also houses over 2,000 pieces of St. EOM’s other artwork, including drawings, paintings and sculptures. Six years after St. EOM committed suicide, the Historical Society created the Pasaquan Preservation Society, which continues to preserve the site and opens it to the public a few days a year.
