The 2021 Community Student Art Exhibitions are proudly presented by Krasl Art Center (KAC) in partnership with the Berrien Regional Education Services Agency (RESA) and the Box Factory for the Arts.

Each year, these partners work together to present two amazing student art shows (Elementary and Middle School/High School). These exhibitions allow local students to display their artwork in a professional venue and have it viewed by hundreds of community members and visitors. While social gatherings are paused, enjoy the online gallery and visit the Best in Show exhibition here at the Box Factory for the Arts Friday, Saturday or Sunday Noon – 4pm, March 19th through April 25th.
