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. Our multi-use arts center includes artist studios, galleries a performance stage, classrooms, Art Shop, meeting space and more. Two floors of the 55,000-sq-ft multi-use art center includes artist studios, galleries, a performance stage, classrooms, Art Shop, meeting space and more.
The Box Factory for the Arts has three galleries: the Robert R. Williams Gallery, the Heartha Whitlow Gallery, and the Riverwalk Gallery. Both the Williams and Whitlow galleries are on the Street Level, while the Riverwalk Gallery is on the River Level of the building.
Throughout the year the Gallery Committee reviews and selects regional artists interested in displaying work at the Box Factory for the Arts. The exhibits, which change every six weeks, are free to the public.
