Honoring Kohler Co. Our 2021 Cultural Champion

October 21, 2021 | Features

Each year, Chapman Cultural Center has the honor of awarding a deserving local organization the distinction of being a Cultural Champion. The Cultural Champion award recipient is an organization that has made a long-standing commitment to the arts through annual, capital, and-or in-kind support, board service, and the presence of arts and creativity in their own organization. We are thrilled to say this year's champion checks off all these boxes, and more! Congratulations, Kohler Co.!


We are proud to say that Kohler has supported the Chapman Cultural Center since 1987 (at least, that’s as far back as our records go)! 

Mr. Mike Kohler and the entire Kohler team will tell you first hand the incredible history of Kohler’s love and support of arts in Sheboygan Wisconsin with the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, but also beyond Wisconsin in the communities they serve. Our staff has had the wonderful opportunity to tour our local Kohler facility and are amazed at their commitment to philanthropy in our community. 


Kohler has been a continued partner of Chapman Cultural Center through the construction of our center in downtown Spartanburg through capital funding and also a very generous gift-in-kind of our fixtures. In addition, Kohler once again stepped up to support the arts through in-kind support of Mayfair Art Studios in 2020. Many even say the bathrooms at Mayfair are our most unique space!


Kohler exemplifies what it means to be a Cultural Champion. Walk into any plumbing supply store and you will quickly see that Kohler embodies creativity in everything they do. We cannot think of a more deserving business to receive our Cultural Champion Award this year! Thank you Kohler!
