Special Event

Historic Barns of Ohio

at the Logan County Transportation Museum

April 13, 2023

Author and painter Robert Kroeger will be doing a painting demo, using palette knives and impasto technique, of an old barn. The painting will be available via a raffle, as a fundraiser. After finishing the demo, he will be telling stories about some of the barns he has painted.  There will be a book signing after his program. Kroeger's first book, HISTORIC BARNS OF OHIO, lists the paintings and essays of barns in all 88 Ohio counties (released by The History Press, March, 2021). His second book on old barns, ROUND BARNS OF AMERICA, will also be available. This book features 75 round barns in 32 states - from the east coast to the west coast - along with their paintings and stories. There are 11 Ohio round barns in the book (published by Acclaim Press in late 2022)

The event is open to the public.

We will post more information as the event nears.
