Rediscovering Nina Belle Ward

Zinnias and Four Vases

Zinnias and Four Vases, n.d., oil on board, 18 x 24. Collection of Professors Dana Ward and Julia Karet.

May 16 - August 23, 2015

This exhibition pays tribute to a talented artist and inspiring teacher who was instrumental in the founding of the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. Nina Belle Ward left an enduring mark on Kalamazoo through her teaching in the early days of the KIA, and at Central High School. This exhibition remembers her contributions and recognizes her own artistic skill in portraiture, still life, and harbor scenes by bringing together work from collections across the country.

To learn more, enjoy the exhibition catalogue, and this essay from our exhibitions department.

This exhibition is made possible with generous support from professors Dana Ward and Julia Karet, with additional assistance from Rick Ryan.
