West Michigan Area Show

This annual exhibition showcases the work of artists from 14 Michigan counties.

The juror for the 2018 West Michigan Area Show is Chicago-based photographer Dawoud Bey, whose work was on view at the KIA this winter. He selected from hundreds of submissions to be hung in this annual exhibition --  which is one example of the KIA's commitment to supporting area. More than $6000 in prizes will be awarded, including a $1000 grand prize, and a $1000 prize sponsored by the City of Portage for a Portage-based artist. Award winners will be announced during the opening reception
