A call to artists is sent to area schools for exhibitions which take place in March and April each year. Exhibitions are presented at the Box Factory for the Arts.
The Elementary Art Exhibition and Middle & High School Art Exhibitions are back! These exhibitions provide important opportunities for school children from Berrien and Cass Counties to exhibit their artwork at The Box Factory for the Arts through Spring of 2020. The community is invited to celebrate the creativity of the region’s young artists by viewing these exhibitions online and in-person, when available. The 2020 Student Art Exhibitions are proudly presented by Krasl Art Center (KAC) in partnership with the Berrien Regional Education Services Agency (RESA) and the Box Factory for the Arts.
Each year, these partners work together to present these two amazing student art shows. These exhibitions allow local students to display their artwork in a professional venue and have it viewed by hundreds of community members and visitors. While social gatherings are paused, enjoy videos of the work from within the Box Factory for the Arts below. For more information on these exhibitions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
