“Selling my work next to the Calder sculpture is a highlight of Festival, for me” – Jerry Berta
We have two categories we host “Art Sales” and “Art on the Spot” for attendees to purchase goods and experiences. The “Art on the Spot” showcases art created in the moment like caricatures, henna tattoos, face painting, sand art, etc. “Art Sales” includes art in many forms from jewelry, fine art originals & prints, leather goods, handmade soap and lotion, etched glass, wood turned items, fabric goods, etc.
Our committee curates the applicants insuring a collection of great artisans that can delight many different shoppers. Festival of the Arts 2019 offers three different locations for artists including Calder Plaza, Kendall College of Art and Design on Ionia Street, and Monroe Center near Rosa Parks Circle. Please share your desired location placement and the committee will do the best in honoring your request.
PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST BE A RESIDENT OF Kent, Newaygo, Barry, Montcalm, Ionia, Muskegon, Ottawa and/or Allegan Counties IN ORDER TO APPLY.
Once you apply, the committee will review your collection of goods and respond to your application. We try to limit the duplication of like items, so the committee does choose what they determine represents the best of the craft.
Application begins December 1st, 2018.
