You have seen their billboards all over town, and now you can meet the artists on Friday, October 21st during Art & All That Jazz at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts!

In early 2011, ten local artists were chosen by the public to have their art featured on billboards that will rotate among (up to) 1,300 locations in Southwest Michigan until May, 2012. Billboard Art has been a very successful, popular way for local artists to advertise their work on a very large, public scale.

On October 21, the following artists will be at Art & All That Jazz to discuss their art, as well as show other works from their studios which will be available for purchase. Partial proceeds from art sales will benefit the 2012 Billboard Art program.

Featured Artists: Jerry Harty, Mary Brodbeck, Sy Ellens, Katherine Martin & Michelle Zorich, Jean Stevens, Kara Aubin & Daniel Juzwiak, Scott Aldrich, Meg Tang, Randy Bronkema and Wendy Vaughan.

Art & All That Jazz combines great music with great art! Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Featured musical guest, 33rd Street Band! Admission is $4 (KIA Members free!) Complimentary food from Panera Bread is included. Beer and wine from Imperial Beverages will be available for purchase. Galleries will be open.
