Three exhibits pay tribute to significant anniversaries.
The Road Less Traveled
The John Michael Kohler Arts Center is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2017 with a yearlong exploration of art environments titled “The Road Less Traveled.” This series features 16 different exhibitions highlighting the works of 19 art-environment builders. It also incorporates writing and artwork produced by scholars, curators, musicians and theorists in response to the environments. This exhibition will run throughout 2017, from January 1–December 31.
Sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald
Over 39 years ago, a 729-foot freighter, the Edmund Fitzgerald, mysteriously wrecked and has since shaped Great Lakes history. The Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay is commemorating the 40th anniversary of the famous ship’s sinking through a tribute exhibition which runs through April 17 in the Reddin Bridge Room of the museum.
We Were There!
Celebrating its 100th birthday, the New London Public Museum is featuring the exhibit “We Were There!” This local history journey shows how life has changed in New London over the past 100 years. From business and industry to sports and recreation, the exhibit will have a little bit of everything from the past century. The exhibit opens in mid-May.
