Special Guest Speakers: Artists Gwen Day and Dee Poisson tell us about the "Paint the Barn Red", a story of rural life and agriculture in Mountain View County from the time of the first settlers in this community to the present. The tale is told through paintings of 49 iconic barns, representative of different eras and painted by 37 local artists.
