"In the Land of Pasaquan: The Story of Eddie Owens Martin" features a large selection of never-before-seen original drawings, sculptures, paintings, regalia, adornments and other examples of art by St. EOM. Through the use of original art, informational text panels, and vintage and contemporary photographs, the colourful exhibit tells the story of the life of the creator of Pasaquan.

St. EOM, who had no formal training, reveled in the intuitive creative art process. He was influenced by many artistic traditions, including Mesoamerican, Africa, and eastern art, but the content of his work was constructed from utopian visions.

Pasaquan is a seven-acre art environment that consists of six major structures, more than 900 feet of painted masonry fence, painted totems, decorative walkways, sculptures, and other art and artifacts in southwest Georgia’s Marion County. Pasaquan is considered among the most important visionary art environments in the United States. Nearly 30 years after the artist’s death—long after the brightly painted masonry had begun to fade literally and figuratively—the Kohler Foundation, the Pasaquan Preservation Society and Columbus State University partnered to bring this extraordinary art environment back to life.
