Go see the John Michael Kohler Arts museum in Sheboygan, Wisconsin if you can. The webpage is at this site http://www.jmkac.org They will tell you all about the schedule and what exhibits are on display. It is free with a donation box on the premises to allow you to decide what amount you wish to leave for the privilege of seeing the exhibit.

Bring a camera and do not be afraid to enter either the men’s or ladies rooms. I was encouraged to photograph both the men and women’s rooms and it was a majestic experience.
From floor to ceiling the bathroom is painted in ceramic tile. The interior of the toilets are exquisite drawings. The interior of the sinks are hand painted. The men’s room is an incredible work of art. The urinals are exceptional works of tile and ceramic art in a tone of blue that is very bright and fluid, I have yet to see anything as remotely inspiring as the walls of those bathrooms.
In 1999, The John Michael Kohler Arts Center retained six local artists to create the gallery and extend their work into the bathrooms. There are six original and unique painting inspired lavatories which are the only permanent art collection at the museum.
The largest of the six bathrooms is the Atrium Men’s room which was designed and created by Matt Nolen. There is a mural titled “The Social History of Architecture” and it follows the periods from Ancient Egypt to present day. This iconic project took Nolen five months to complete.
