Regional Arts

Festival of the arts Regional Arts Competition

Underwritten by The Daniel and Pamella DeVos Foundation

Hosted by Kendall College of Art and Design


The 2017 Regional Arts Competition and Exhibition will be a bit different this year. The Drop-off will be at the former Water Department Building at 1101 Monroe North (just south of Leonard Street). Art will be juried there and non-selected art will be pick-up at that location. Works selected for the Regional Arts Exhibition will be moved (by festival) to Kendall College of Art and Design where they will be placed on display until Saturday, July 15. 

Pick Up of selected works after the show. (All works that are in the show will be picked up at KCAD after the Closing Reception in the Fed Galleries or at the Division Avenue Loading Dock:

  • Saturday, July 15, 4:00 to 5:00 pm (after the Closing Reception)
  • Monday, July 17, Noon to 5:00 pm at the loading dock. 

Kendall College of Art and Design has graciously agreed to become the host site for the Regional Show and also is underwriting the Juror’s Awards. 

New also this year; there will be a display of some of the Award Winners (as many as can be accommodated) in the East Gallery of the Grand Rapids Art Museum in the fall of 2017 following ArtPrize. You will be asked to sign an agreement to allow your work to be shown there on the Regional Arts Application.
