Where nature provides the canvas & the boundaries of artistic vision are limitless…

The Holmes County Open Air Art Museum is a fusion of nature and art set within a majestic landscape of lush forest and rolling hillsides. Spread throughout the grounds of The Inn at Honey Run, the region’s only Open Air Art Museum showcases original works from local and regional artists of various backgrounds, mediums and disciplines.

Walk the path of the OAAM during each of the four seasons for an ever-evolving experience of earthly and man-made works of art.
