The Road Less Traveled Conference

Special Events

September 27–29

Scholars, artists, preservationists, educators, activists, art historians, collectors and devotees will delve into the complex subject of artist-built environments during a three-day conference, September 27-29, 2017, at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center.

Through a variety of performances, panels, and workshops, attendees will share new ideas and broaden the collective knowledge and appreciation of this unique style of art making that is the focus of a yearlong series of exhibitions at the Arts Center.

The conference, titled The Road Less Traveled, is the third Divine Disorder program of the National Park Service’s National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT). In addition to the Arts Center and NCPTT, Kohler Foundation Inc. is a hosting partner for the conference.

September 26, 5:00–7:00 p.m.

The night before the official program starts, the conference will kick off with a pre-conference meet and greet at the nearby Tellen Woodland Sculpture Garden. Join your fellow conference attendees for an evening outdoors with refreshments and good company.
