John Michael Kohler Arts Center

The John Michael Kohler Arts Center’s mission is to generate a creative exchange between artists and the public. The Arts Center serves as a laboratory for the creation of new works, nurturer of interdisciplinary initiatives, originator of exhibitions, presenter of performing arts, educator, community builder and advocate for arts issues, functioning as a catalyst for ideas that will impact the lives of artists and the public. The Arts Center works with community partners to develop goals and priorities as we reach the local Sheboygan, WI community, Midwest region, and nationally. We envision a world in which communities collaborate and explore the arts to nourish and enrich the lives of all. We believe that art in all its forms is vital to the health of our communities, our nation, and our world; we believe that art enriches the human spirit. We activate creative exchanges through equitable, intentional, and creative opportunities inclusive of artist collaborations, participatory experiences, community partnerships, and accessible resources that foster lifelong learning through the arts.
