Sheboygan and City Green: the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and the State Trunk Tour Podcast

John Michael Kohler Arts Center


The John Michael Kohler Arts Center (JMKAC) offers a variety of concepts and directions in contemporary art with particular consideration of craft-related forms, installation works, photography, new genres, ongoing cultural traditions, and the work of self-taught artists.  They have an impressive collection of permanent exhibits and a dynamic series of rotating ones.  Their ARTspace gallery offers international collections and exhibits.

The JMKAC has a world-renowned Arts/Industry program, considered one of the most unusual ongoing collaborations between arts and industry in the country (the Kohler Corporation’s involvement is, of course, one reason for this.)

Plenty of events are hosted at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center too, check our Event Calendar for those or the JMKAC Event Calendar!
