Long Description:
To celebrate and commemorate Ohio's 200th anniversary as a state, the Ohio Bicentennial Commission selected artist Scott Hagan to paint at least one barn in each of Ohio's eighty-eight counties with the bicentennial logotype. The project began in 1997 and was completed in September 2002. Hagan sketched the image by hand on each barn before painting it. No two barns are exactly alike. Hagan completed all of the work himself and used one hundred paintbrushes and 645 gallons of paint. As Hagan traveled across Ohio, he drove approximately sixty-five thousand miles with his truck. Several people followed Hagan from barn to barn as he completed his work. Several journalists have completed stories on the barns and people from across the United States have come to see them. All of the barns survived to the bicentennial celebration in 2003 with one exception. In 1998, a tornado destroyed the first Ottawa County barn. Hagan painted a this one in the county in 2001.
