Ray Yoshida Exhibition
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) – A Sheboygan museum is featuring a series of exhibitions of work done or collected by Chicago artist Ray Yoshida. The John Michael Kohler Arts Center calls the series “The Open Eye.” This is the first time Yoshida’s complete collection of 2,600 pieces, along with 60 of his own works, will be on view since his death in 2009. The center received Yoshida’s entire home collection when he died. Yoshida taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for nearly four decades. Besides his own work – collage, oils, prints and drawings – Yoshida collected folk art, manufactured goods, pop culture art, fine art and ethnographic art. There are five exhibitions altogether. Two have already opened and the other three open Oct. 13.
