Sheboygan's Weill Center hosts national and regional performing arts and features a beautiful restored theater where every seat in the house enjoys an excellent view of the stage.
Standing at the center of the Lakeland College campus, you may feel like you are a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of a major city. You're not.
Not far from the campus you'll find all of the amenities offered by a major city.
The City of Sheboygan, population 50,000, is eleven miles from the campus. Sheboygan offers excellent dining, an active and vibrant local music scene, bicycle trails, a weekend farmers market, excellent shopping areas, and a beautiful lakefront. The Stefanie H. Weill Center and the John Michael Kohler Arts Center serve as focal points for cultural and community activities in this beautiful city.
The John Michael Kohler Arts Center is recognized for its "collection of folk art, vernacular art, and works by self-taught artists, as well as its support of emerging contemporary artists. The art center's 100,000-square-foot facility features 10 galleries, a theatre, shop, and café, as well as studio classrooms and meeting space."
The Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts evolved out of the $11 million restoration of the historic Sheboygan Theater. The Spanish Colonial Revival architectural style movie-theater was built in the 1920's and serves now as the home to the Sheboygan Symphony concerts and live guest appearances by many well-known artists.
