44th Annual Holiday Art Sale: December 1-2

Saturday, December 2: 9 am-3 pm
Member night: Thursday, 5-8 pm
Every year, the KIA is transformed into a bustling marketplace for its annual Holiday Art Sale. This Kalamazoo tradition fills the museum lobby and art school studios with hand-crafted ceramics; jewelry; fused glass wearables and decor; hand-woven scarves and accessories; paintings; functional and decorative ceramics; framed photographs, prints, and paintings; and metal sculpture. More than a 1,000 shoppers annually find one-of-a-kind gifts, wearable art, and home decor. The museum often sees a spike in membership from those seeking early shopping benefits.
On view will be the work of more than 150 artists who teach or take classes at the Kirk Newman Art School. All of the work is created by art school students and faculty in the studios and classrooms of the art school, and proceeds support the artists and the school.
