Warhol Foundation donates $100,000 to Sheboygan art center

The John Michael Kohler Arts Center, in Sheboygan, recently received a $100,000 grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The grant will be used for exhibition program support over the next two years.
“We are extremely honored by this recognition,” said Mary Jo McBrearty, chief development officer at the Arts Center. “This grant provides invaluable support for the Arts Center’s development of original exhibitions that engage the public in contemporary art and increase awareness of the work of under-recognized artists.”
According to the Art Center, the grant will be used to partially fund three major exhibition projects in 2012 and 2013. The exhibits include The Kids Are All Right, an exhibition about family and photography; Landscapes of Desire, an exhibition of gallery installations addressing the land; and Ray Yoshida: The Open Eye, an exhibit that takes a look at the artist’s legacy and his role in establishing a Midwestern aesthetic.
This is the second Warhol Foundation grant the John Michael Kohler Arts Center has received. A series of solo exhibitions at the Arts Center in 2000 also benefitted from the Foundation’s support.
