Ohio is home to some amazing artists: musicians, filmmakers, visual artists, and more. Sometimes Ohio even becomes a place to create for those in the big cities of Chicago and New York, Harold Arts does exactly this by hosting artist residencies on its property in Morgan County just outside the town of Chesterhill. The place is called 8550 Ohio 377 and that so happens to be its address too. Traysh Island is a two-day ribbon (this weekend August 24th and 25th)cutting and celebration for artist Conrad Freiburg’s Woodshed, an 11-sided stellar observatory he designed and constructed at 8550 Ohio 377. Jason Ajemian is curating the music with 17 bands playing from Brooklyn, Chicago, Lafayette Indiana and of course Ohio is well represented with groups from Athens and Yellow Springs. $15 a day for no camping, $30 for two days and no camping, $50 for two days and camping and you can buy tickets by clicking here.
