The Holmes County Open Air Art Museum is a fusion of mother nature, artistic vision, endless creativity and majestic landscape. Spread throughout the grounds of The Inn at Honey Run, The Open Air Art Museum (OAAM) showcases original works from local and regional artists of various backgrounds, mediums and disciplines.
Featured artists include:
Walter Herrmann | Jan & Vince Bowden | Julie Warther | Katharine Marie Moya
Mixed media artist from Columbus, OH, Katharine Marie, is the next resident artist for The Inn at Honey Run’s Open Air Art Museum (OAAM). Kat will be spending at least five days each month, for the next five months, building a life-sized cuckoo clock made of mostly organic materials found on and around the property.
The use of the German-style cuckoo clock will celebrate the Amish culture and German-named towns of the surrounding area of Holmes County. The installation will live as the end-cap of the OAAM trail. Walking through the time-piece is intended to serve as a sort of reward.
“This installation has special meaning to me as I completed a series that represented the A.M. hours in 2013. This installation will represent the P.M. hours, the latter half of the day, and goes perfectly with the idea of completion,” said Katharine Marie.
The installation is estimated to be around 10-feet tall and is slated for completion in the early fall of 2016.
“I am encouraging people that hike the trail to leave behind their walking stick at the installation to be incorporated into the piece during its creation.”
Other work by Katharine Marie can be viewed at her website, muscadomestica.co.

I understand that the art is located in the forest or park, I’m planning a trip winter trip; I would like to visit the art exhibits during the week of December 20 -24th 2015? Please send me the park information
Thank you for your interest in the Open Air Art Museum! We’re looking forward to having you visit the property next week. The art exhibits are right here on the grounds at the Inn at Honey Run, easily accessible from the Inn and surrounding parking area. The exhibits and grounds are free and open to the public. Feel free to inquire at the front desk for a map of the Art Walk and additional information about the exhibits on display. See you next week!
Is the installation of the Art without Boarders still at honey Run. I would love to come and hike and see the Largest Open Air Museum in the Midwest?
Our Open Air Art Museum is still an active outdoor museum that we are constantly growing and evolving, and we intend to continue doing so for many years to come. We hope you make it out and are able to come see it first-hand someday!
