4th Annual Portage Community Art Award Call for Artists



The City of Portage is calling for artists for the 4th Annual Portage Community Art Award in conjunction with the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts (KIA) annual West Michigan Area Show (WMAS). WMAS is a juried exhibition of the visual arts that includes paintings, prints, photos, mosaics, ceramics, jewelry, sculptures, and mixed media from talent spanning a 14-county region.

The 2021 WMAS juror is New York-based curator, Larry Ossei-Mensah. To be eligible for the $1,000 Portage Community Art Award, the winning artist must be a resident of the Portage. Artwork submitted must reflect the city’s theme, A Natural Place to Move!

After display at the KIA, the winning piece must be available for display in Portage City Hall Lobby for one year beginning with installation on Wednesday, September 8, 2021. The winner must submit 10 to 12 additional works of art (of any medium) for display in City Hall for an exhibition from September 9 through October 29, 2021. Artists may submit entries per the guidelines available at kiarts.org by March 31, 2021.
