Who We Are: The Dairy Barn Arts Center’s mission is to offer exhibitions, events, and educational programs that nurture and promote area artists and artisans, develop art appreciation among all ages, provide the community access to fine arts and crafts from outside the region and draw attention and visitors to Southeast Ohio.

What We Do: The twelve-month program calendar includes international juried exhibitions, touring exhibits, programs of regional interest, live performances, summer art camp, and activities for

all ages. Some events are produced entirely by The Dairy Barn Arts Center while others are the result of collaboration with regional education, arts, or community organizations.

Why We're Important: The Dairy Barn offers access to art that wouldn’t be available in our region otherwise. Located in Athens, Ohio, one of the poorest counties in US, we serve Southeastern Ohio with top-notch arts education, world-renowned exhibitions such as Quilt National, and much-needed artist support.

How We Impact the Community: Since its establishment in 1978, The Dairy Barn has been a major resource in our community, providing valuable arts education outreach services, a place for local youth to come together through artistic expression, and a quality platform for regional artists to showcase their work. We bring the community together through the power of art and expression.

How You Can Help: The Dairy Barn seeks support for our three major programs: exhibitions, youth education, and our three art studios.
