In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center presents The Road Less Traveled, a yearlong series of 15 exhibitions exploring the multifaceted and unique field of artist-built environments. This series draws deeply from the Arts Center's world-renowned collection, offering the opportunity to experience the work of art-environment builders including Emery Blagdon, Loy Bowlin, Nek Chand, Eddie Owens Martin, Eugene Von Bruenchenhein, and many others.
In addition, THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED incorporates new writing and works of art produced by scholars, curators, musicians, and theorists from wide-ranging disciplines in response to art environments. Through connecting its collection with internationally respected thinkers, the Arts Center aims to expand the conversation surrounding this compelling art form.
