Celebrate Visual Art in Area Schools


St. Joseph, Mich., March 4 - Area students have the chance to showcase their artwork at the 2019 Student Show at the Box Factory, March 9 - April 26. Both the Elementary Art Exhibition and Middle & High School Exhibitions are presented by the Krasl Art Center in proud partnership with the Berrien Regional Education Services Agency (RESA) and the Box Factory for the Arts.


Berrien RESA, The Box Factory for the Arts and Krasl Art Center join forces to present two amazing student art shows, one for elementary students and one for middle school and high school students. This art show allows local students to exhibit their artwork in a professional venue and have it viewed by hundreds of people in our communities. All are invited to celebrate the creativity of the region’s young artists by attending both the exhibitions and their supporting receptions.


Both exhibitions will be held at the Box Factory for the Arts in the Robert Williams Gallery, the Heartha Whitlow Gallery, and the Riverwalk Gallery. The Box Factory for the Arts is located at 1101 Broad Street, Saint Joseph, MI 49085, and may be reached at 269-983-3688.
