About The Sheboygan Project

Art does not have to be confined to museums and galleries. The Sheboygan Project brings the street-art movement to Sheboygan, Wisconsin by using the urban landscape as a canvas for exciting works of art that reflect the city’s people and culture.

History/Context

Wooster Collective founders Marc and Sara Schiller have celebrated ephemeral art placed on streets in cities throughout the world since 2001. As part of a yearlong project that began in 2012, Wooster Collective, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, renowned street artists, area residents, civic organizations, businesses, and property owners have worked together to locate potential street-art sites throughout the city. This summer, those locations will be home to exciting new works of art.

The goal of this street art series is to create a more intimate relationship between the invited artists and the Sheboygan community receiving his or her art. It is hoped that this project will continue to draw and inspire artists from inside and outside of our community by increasing and strengthening the city’s public art and cultural diversity. Additionally, The Sheboygan Project aims to further develop Sheboygan’s reputation as a destination for artists and encourage locals to embrace the arts culture of their city.

This summer will be a collaborative one! The Sheboygan Project begins with a series of artist residencies, workshops, the installation of collaborative new works of art, and an exhibition of submitted works in the Community Gallery and on building exteriors in Sheboygan.
