John Michael Kohler Arts Center reveals plans for Art Preserve on Sheboygan’s west side

For several years, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center has pursued addressing the challenges presented by the expanding size of its unparalleled collection of works by artist-environment builders and by the increased interest in this remarkable art form.

The solution begins taking solid form in March with ground breaking on construction of the Art Preserve—the first facility of its kind devoted to the study of artist-built environments and their conservation, preservation, and presentation. The Art Preserve will complement the exhibitions and programs that will continue to be offered at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center’s main facility in downtown Sheboygan.
