WOOSTER COLLECTIVE: THE SHEBOYGAN PROJECT
More than 300 participants transformed venues throughout the city of Sheboygan into works of art this past summer as part of Wooster Collective: The Sheboygan Project. Over one dozen sites are now home to works created in collaboration with renowned street artists from across the nation.

Gabriel Specter (NY) kicked off the summer with radio interviews discussing his affection for Sheboygan and its people. His piece, located on Washington Avenue, depicts a complex system that represents the interconnectedness of local communities and how when people work together, they create a whole.

Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn used more than 60 designs made during February’s Wooster Lab in the Main Gallery of the Arts Center.

These Baltimore natives incorporated designs created by Arts Center Preschool and area school district students, Senior Activity Center participants, and STARS Girls as well as Arts Center volunteers and visitors into a spectacular color collage facing the lake on the Deland Park Pavilion. Dozens of community members came out to participate and see their paper collages come to life.

Chris Stain (NY) created a piece inspired by neighborhood gardens that can be viewed on Kentucky Avenue (pictured above). The End Park Pavilion is now the site of a work by the artist known as Other (IL).

Many other pieces are on view throughout the city of Sheboygan.
