Tomorrow, November 4th, Pasaquan will be open, and many artists will be showing. I’ve never been to Pasaquan, but would *love* to go – it’s an art environment by Eddie Owens Martin (St. EOM) just outside Buena Vista, Georgia.
The story of the place is here. I especially like the quote on the website of St. EOM to his biographer:
“I built this place to have somethin’ to identify with, cause there’s nothin’ that I see in this society that I identify with or desire to emulate. Here I can be in my own world with my temples and designs and the spirit of G-d. I don’t have nothin’ against other people and their beliefs. I’m not askin’ anybody to do my way or be my way. Although, when I’m dead and gone, they’ll follow like night follows day.”
