John Michael Kohler Arts Center

The John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin holds the most substantial collection of the work of Stella Waitzkin–over 700 individual pieces. The Center, which has a special interest in honoring and preserving artist-constructed environments, acquired a large segment of the lived environment that Stella Waitzkin constructed around herself over decades while  living in an apartment at the Chelsea Hotel in Manhattan.  

A video recording of the Chelsea Hotel environment is accessible elsewhere on this website. Images from several exhibitions of Stella’s work at the Arts Center are presented below, along with selected representative works in their collection. A link to the complete holdings of the John Michael Kohler Arts Center is also offered here.
