Kohler Art Preserve Virtual Tour

ARTISTS TRANSFORMING SPACE
Be one of the first to preview the Art Preserve, the new home of the John Michael Arts Center’s world-renowned collection of artist-built environments. The Art Preserve offers a new kind of museum experience, allowing visitors to see thousands of works previously kept in closed storage. We’ll explore how artists from Wisconsin and beyond transformed their spaces into densely-packed creative environments filled with sculptures, paintings, signs, collections, and more. We’ll also see responses to those environments from contemporary artists who’ve been inspired by the collection. The Art Preserve grand opening is in June, but you can get a sneak peek during this virtual tour.
