Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff owes much of its success to the support of its sponsors.  Without sponsors we simply would not be able to carry out our mission through our annual Art Fair. We are always looking for ways to provide sponsors with opportunities to build awareness while supporting the largest summer event in Michigan’s Great Southwest.  Please review these community heroes and support them with your business when possible.

Krasl Art Center and Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff offer Premier, Supporting and Contributing levels of sponsorship.  Thank you to the current sponsors of Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff.
