As part of a yearlong project that began in 2012, Wooster Collective, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, renowned street artists, area residents, civic organizations, businesses, and property owners have worked together to locate potential street-art sites throughout the city. This summer, those locations became home to exciting new works of art.
The goal of this Connecting Communities project was to create a more intimate relationship between the invited artist in residence and the Sheboygan community receiving his or her art and working collaboratively together. It is hoped that this project will continue to draw and inspire artists from inside and outside of our community by increasing and strengthening the city’s public art and cultural diversity. Additionally, The Sheboygan Project aims to further develop Sheboygan’s reputation as a destination for artists and encourage locals to embrace the arts culture of their city.

On View: Other’s “Shallow Lake” at MOHS exhibit
Troy Lovegates aka Other recently traveled to Copenhagen for his solo show, “Shallow Lake” at MOHS exhibit. Painting collage-style portraits, Other fragments his subjects into cacophonies of Pop Art-inspired geometric forms and vivid colors. But underneath the kaleidoscopic shapes, Other’s work depicts people that appear dejected and pushed out by society. Check out some of of the works in the show below and take a look at Other’s new mural in Copenhagen, photos courtesy of Henrik Haven. “Shallow Lake” is on view through June 29.
Shot in partnership with Springbook Nature Center, the photo series captures beautiful studio-style portraits of birds taking flight as they’re released back into the wild.
