THE LAKESHORE ART FESTIVAL
Art has been a driving force in downtown Muskegon for over a century. In 1961 Hackley Park became the center for a large scale art and craft show known as Muskegon Art in the Park.
In 2013, the Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce took the local Art in the Park event to the next level with the creation of the Lakeshore Art Festival!
INTERESTED IN BEING INVOLVED OR PARTICIPATING?
There are plenty of ways to get involved with the Lakeshore Art Festival. Fill out of form on our Get Involved section for more information.
PUMPKINFEST AVENUE ART

Part of the draw that keeps Pumpkinfest new and fresh each year is the long-standing tradition of featuring displays throughout downtown Zeeland based on the annual theme. The 2014 theme is “Pumpkinfest Pride...Celebrating 30 Years!” This year Pumpkinfest, in conjunction with the Holland Area Arts Council, will carry on the tradition with a new program called, Pumpkinfest Avenue Art.

Call for Artists to exhibit at the Kalamazoo Nature Center!
Help connect people with nature through art! Local and regional artists are invited to submit their nature related two-dimensional, artwork for review.
The Kalamazoo Nature Center (KNC) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to inspire people to care for the environment by providing experiences that lead them to understand their connection to the natural world. Located on 1100 acres, KNC is just fivemiles north of downtown Kalamazoo and offers a variety of nature related activities and programs for all ages. A highlight on the property is the main Visitor Center, which houses many educational exhibits, live animal displays and a 1300 square foot gallery, which acts as a space for artists to exhibit nature-related artwork. The Glen Vista Gallery is a space where visitors are inspired by the art on the walls and the beauty of the forest beyond the windows. Currently, we are looking for artists to fill 8 week periods for the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
