Box Factory and THE Berrien Artist Guild

The Berrien Artist Guild, Inc., founded in 1962, purchased the historic Williams Bros. Paper Box Mfg. building in 1995. This small group of enthusiastic artists converted the old factory building into today's multi-use arts facility known as the Box Factory for the Arts where all the arts are celebrated.
