The grounds of the John Michael Kohler Arts Center will feature 50 artist booths, music, food trucks, and art-making opportunities. Artist booths will offer a variety of works to choose from, including paintings, photographs, furniture, jewelry, wearables, wood carvings, ceramics, glass, leather goods, sculptures, textiles, toys, and more.
This year’s festival is dedicated to the late Ruth DeYoung Kohler II, who founded the festival more than 50 years ago. Inside the Arts Center, an exhibition inside the Arts Center will explore Kohler’s life and legacy of through objects and art from her personal collection. Gallery visitors will be invited to share memories of Ruth and to create their own Ruth-inspired works of art through hands-on activities.
Midsummer Festival of the Arts is supported in part by presenting sponsor Bank First.
