Ene and I (wowhaus) have been invited to be artists in residence at the Kohler Arts Center Connecting Communities program over the coming year. We plan to realize a project with focus on human-powered transportation and have been researching the city’s rich past and progressive plans for modeling the potential for a ‘green’ city. I’ve been very impressed with Sheboygan’s Non-Motorized Transportation Pilot Program (NMTPP) and their ambitious plans for future bike and pedestrian paths.
I hope to have time to explore the city on my Dahon Folder when I make the initial, exploratory visit next month. I have not used the bike much since I customized it with wooden panniers and a homemade trailer as the centerpiece of our biodiesel project, Friesel. I will at least bring along my Windsor Longboard if the snow holds off.
