Share Your Response To The Art Preserve (Sheboygan, WI) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] The John Michael Kohler Arts Center invites you to submit a proposal for a project that shares a personal response to one or more artworks on the first floor of the Art Preserve, the home of the Arts Center’s collection of artist-built environments. Every visitor to the Art Preserve connects to the work in a different way. How can an emotional response become a poem, a nostalgic connection be translated into dance, musings of future dreams and visions be interpreted in song, or newfound questions about our world be depicted through sculpture?

Sharing these responses fosters new understandings about the collection, each other, and ourselves. The Arts Center invites makers of all mediums to submit proposals for work that makes tangible their response to the first floor of the Art Preserve.
