John Michael Kohler Arts Center Reopens

The John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboyan, Wis., has reopened to the public with new hours and timed-entry reservations.

“COVID-19 has brought many changes to the ways we conduct our daily lives and the ways the Arts Center continues to engage people in rewarding arts experiences,” said Sam Gappmayer, Arts Center director. “The safety and well-being of our visitors and staff has been our top priority in developing policies and staff training that allow us to open our doors again.”

Highlighting the reopening is a new group exhibition, titled Between You and Me, featuring contemporary artists whose work engages in acts of community connection and care. Included are works by Chloë Bass, Sara Clugage, General Sisters (Dana Bishop-Root and Ginger Brooks Takahashi), Harriet Tubman Center for Expanded Curatorial Practice with Lisa Jarrett and Harrell Fletcher featuring the work of Lawrence Oliver, John Preus, Benjamin Todd Wills, and Christine Wong Yap. Between You and Me is part of On Being Here (and There), an exhibition series exploring how artistic practices can enhance and activate our communities.

Online offerings such as 360-degree gallery videos, art activities, and artist interviews related to Being Here (and There) can be explored online at jmkac.org/cares. Information about the Thursday Nights Together (at a Distance) program are available at jmkac.org.
