Pasaquan opened to the public on October 22, 2016 after two years of structural repairs and intense art conservation work by Kohler Foundation. As Eddie Owens Martin -known as St. EOM - would say, the past, present, and future all come together at Pasaquan. And, indeed, they have.
Pasaquan has proven to be Kohler Foundation’s largest and most rigorous project to date. With six structures on seven acres and 900 linear feet of decorated concrete fence, plus stairs, pathways, decorated roofs, and amazing hand-crafted tin work, the objects conservators (International Artifacts), painting conservators (Parma Conservation), and general contractor (TG Gregory) had their work cut out for them. A large archive and collection of paintings, artifacts, jewelry, clothes, and other items were also included in the scope of the project. Two years later, Pasaquan now stands as a remarkable success story.
Pasaquan was gifted to Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia, and is now open to the public. A collection of St. EOM’s art was gifted to the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin and will be on display beginning January 15, 2017.
