Kohl’s Color Wheels

A Mobile Art Experience Like No Other!

kcw-van
Imagine a vehicle that brings creativity and ingenuity into your community—a mobile art experience that’s like an extension of the Milwaukee Art Museum, where kids not only take part in fun projects, but also grow and learn through art! That’s the idea behind Kohl’s Color Wheels, a van that will make appearances at community festivals and educational events throughout the year.
