Date & Time
The Kohler Experience Center is proud to present a selection of work by renowned artist Arlene Shechet, on display March 2019 through early 2020. The display features the molds and two top portions of Shechet’s Tall Feather sculpture, a piece in her public art installation Full Steam Ahead on view at Madison Square Park until the end of April. Kohler’s display provides a fascinating inside look into the artist’s creation process, as she seeks to redefine our perception of public art. Many of Shechet’s pieces for Full Steam Ahead were created during her residency at John Michael Kohler Arts Center’s Arts/Industry program hosted by the Kohler Co. pottery and foundry, where she was given the time and resources to stretch the limits of sculpture. Kohler believes art is essential to the human experience, having the power to move people to empathize, to question, and to act. Since 1974, the Arts/Industry residency program has been enriching the lives of artists and the Kohler craftsmen who work beside them in the factory.
