The City of Portage announces the 6th Annual Portage Community Art Award in conjunction with the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts’ (KIA) annual West Michigan Area Show (WMAS). The WMAS is a juried exhibition of the visual arts from community talent spanning a 14-county region.

Artwork submitted must reflect the city’s theme, “A Natural Place to Move”, and the winning artwork must be available for display in the Portage City Hall Lobby for one year beginning September 7, 2023. In addition, the winner will need a minimum of 12 to 20 additional works of art of any medium for an exhibition in Portage City Hall from September 8 to October 30, 2023, following the KIA exhibition. The artist must be available for a private reception and unveiling of the winning work of art along with their accompanying exhibition on September 7, 2023.
