I think it is so cool that a company like Kohler exists that has created a place for artists. I believe their artist in residency program which they have had since 1974 has helped the Kolher company to evolve into an industry leader. Having professional artists in house to work on their own projects has left a large deposit of innovation and beauty within their company ethos year after year. This is a great example of knitting together industry and the arts, the corporate world with the artistic visionary world, the bottom line guy with the dreamer.
The next question is, why don't we create a similar model right here in West Michigan?
