The John Michael Kohler Arts Center draws as many visitors to its famed washrooms as it does to its art exhibitions. These six gorgeous spaces-each commissioned to a different resident artist-are meant to symbolize the connection between art and industry. The Kohler Co. gave the artists full rein of its shops and foundries to explore new techniques in pottery, iron, enamel, and brass. The results are on permanent display (and use) in various wings of the center. Matt Nolen's Social History of Architecture has a hand-glazed, floor-to-ceiling mural chronicling the history of architecture, while Ann Agee's east men's room is tiled in blue and white and centers on a theme of water. Security guards will let you peer into a lavatory of the opposite sex (when the coast is clear). And admission to the center is free.
