Then she moved to Orthober’s Gallery & Framery and learned about photo and art editing programs before buying the gallery in 2002.

Kohler Art Preserve

Be the first to preview the ‘Art Preserve’ Thursday, Feb. 11

On Thursday, Feb. 11 2021, you can 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’s grand opening won’t be until June, but the Division of Continuing Education and Community Engagement has coordinated an early virtual tour.

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.

There is a nominal fee, and a link will be sent via email a few days prior to the event.
