SVA History & Purpose
The Sheboygan Visual Artists was founded on July 23, 2007 by Frank Juarez. Its first gathering took place on this day with four artists; Dale Knaak, Stuart Howland, Mary Kuehl, Frank Juarez and one art patron, Dr. Jack Westfall. Since its inauguration its membership has grown from a few members to over seventy artists and patrons today working in all types of media.
The purpose of SVA is to provide local and regional artists with a platform to support, empower, and promote them and their work.
