Inspire meaningful change and strengthen community through the visual arts.
“Make life more worthwhile” – Olga Krasl
HOW IT ALL STARTED
In 1962 a handful of local artists held a clothesline art exhibition along Lake Bluff Park in St. Joseph, Michigan. Those artists went on to form the St. Joseph Art Association which, in 1979, through the beneficence of George & Olga Krasl, built Krasl Art Center as we know it today.
THE KAC TODAY
The Krasl Art Center provides southwest Michigan residents and visitors the opportunity to experience high quality art exhibitions, installations, and events as well as art classes, camps, guest artist workshops, and outreach opportunities. Located in a 17,500 square foot building, the center has public galleries, art-making studios, a black-and-white wet darkroom, a gift shop, and a permanent collection of 41 sculptures.
The former clothesline art exhibition has now become the nationally ranked Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff, a juried fine art/fine craft fair featuring 200 artists from U.S. and international locations.
The KAC is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, Washington D.C.
