Preservation of Pasaquan
"Pasaquan...one of the most remarkable folk art environments in America."
In May 2014 The Kohler Foundation, Inc., an organization known for their efforts in preservation of art and art sites, announced their plans for a complete restoration of this colorful art environment. Natalie Black Kohler, President of the Kohler Foundation stated, "this is one of the largest art environment preservation projects we have ever undertaken." Therefore it comes as no surprise that Tim Gregory, an artistic visionary and talented craftsman, would have been tapped by the Kohler Foundation to oversee the Pasaquan restoration project.
