This was an old cow barn made into an Art Barn. They had Appalachian art when we visited. The building itself is so cool. Across the street is a graveyard where people from a mental institute were buried years ago.

This was our first trip to the Dairy Art Barn located behind the Ridges buildings for Ohio University. Easily accessible. Loved the collection of wooden objects, prints, jewelry and quilts - all made by local artists and reasonably priced. We went to the Spring Show...More

We've been frequenting the Dairy Barn since its inception. Lots of fine exhibits. Lots of fine events. Lots of fine memories. To think we almost lost this treasure (the former dairy barn of the Athens Mental Health Center, earlier known as the Athens Lunatic Asylum.)

The Dairy Barn provides a beautiful space for the Arts and events. The recent renovations has brought new life this once dairy barn. The expanded gift shops has a selection of original works and locally produced items.

The Dairy Art Barn is a low-key attraction and something anyone can enjoy. I especially like the new (expanded) gift shop. What a great place to shop! The current display of quilts is really amazing.

Beautiful old barn that has been renovated with care and attention to detail. Lovely setting down a winding lane off the main highway. Quilt show is truly excellent and has so many styles of quilting plus short descriptions by the artist/quilter. New gift shop is...More

We stopped by the Dairy Barn after visiting the Kennedy Art Museum. They are very close to each other. Signage directing one to the Dairy Art Barn was a bit challenging, but it is well worth finding. The quilt National exhibit was well displayed and...More
