Precession of a Day: The World of Mary Nohl

Community Partners: Acme RecordsMargaret Muza Photography, John Michael Kohler Arts Center


Marielle Allschwang & The Visitations present a multimedia exploration of the life and work of Mary Nohl (1914-2001), creator of a legendary Wisconsin art environment. Featuring a song cycle set to footage from Nohl’s home, Allschwang and her band take a deep dive into a little-known and astoundingly prolific, complicated artist deserving much more renown.

Precession of a Day: The World of Mary Nohl has been commissioned by the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Milwaukee Film, Wisconsin Union Theater/UW Madison, and the Cedar Cultural Center. Additional funding has been provided by the Mary L. Nohl Fund of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.
