Historic Barns of Ohio
at the Logan County Transportation Museum
April 13, 2023
The Logan County History Center and the Logan County Land Trust will be welcoming author and painter Robert Kroeger to the History Center for a painting demo of an old barn, using palette knives and impasto technique. At 4:00 pm, you are invited to watch Mr. Kroeger paint in the Atrium of the Transportation Museum. The Logan County Land Trust will be selling raffle tickets to win this painting and other items as a fundraiser. The winner will be drawn at a later date.
Mr. Kroeger will take a break at 5:00 pm and begin his program about barns he has painted and their stories at 6:00 pm. The History Center will be open for tours between 4:00 – 6:00 pm.
After his program, Mr. Kroeger will have his books available for purchase and signing. His 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 free and open to the public.
