transformation gala 2019

 

 

The Board of Directors and Friends of Art of the John Michael Kohler Arts Center
invite you to join us for our annual benefit Gala.

5:30 p.m.
Saturday, January 26, 2019

Hosted at Kohler Co.
444 Highland Drive, Kohler, WI

Celebrate the initiators, the instigators, and the originators of transformation. From Galileo to Gates, Curie to Kafka, agents of change have stepped into the risky and rewarding space of reconstructing the norm and upending the status quo. Assume the guise of your chosen change maker and indulge in an evening of dining, dancing, and comradery.

Enjoy a farm-to-table menu by The American Club and an open bar, complimentary beer, wine, and soda.
