Artists Meeting Artists: “Hosted by the Portage Arts Committee”

There are hundreds of talented performing, visual and literary artists in the Portage area so let's get acquainted!  Join this networking event to meet other artists and discover new opportunities and ideas on how the city of Portage can help you share your work and expand arts in Portage.  The city is planning several exciting arts-related events this year.  This gathering will include light refreshments, artist themed mocktails, and an open mic stage for music, readings, and announcements for you to share your art vision and activities.  Join us as “Artists Meeting Artists” to develop ways we can share the arts with our community.  For more information, contact Portage Parks & Recreation at (269) 329-4522.
