Portage Community Art Award Exhibition

Community Art Award 1200 2023

The City of Portage 6th Annual Portage Community Art Award (PCAA) exhibition opens Friday, September 8 in the lobby of Portage City Hall, 7900 South Westnedge Avenue.  The exhibition features art from 2023 PCAA-winning artist, Paul May, whose winning work of art is a mix of beautiful woods engineered and crafted to form his original design bowl titled, "Three Dimensionality”.

The PCAA is part of the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts (KIA) annual West Michigan Area Show (WMAS), a juried exhibition of the visual arts from community talent spanning a 14-county region.  The art ranges from paintings, prints, and photos to mosaics, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, and mixed media. This year, submissions were judged by Alison Wong the Director and Curator of Wasserman Projects, a contemporary art space in Detroit’s Eastern Market. Ms. Wong is also an artist, educator, and the founder of Butter Projects, an artist-run studio and exhibition space in Royal Oak, Michigan.

The Portage Community Art Award offers a $1,000 prize to the winning artist whose submission best reflects the city’s theme, “A Natural Place to Move”.  The exhibition is open to the public Monday through Friday through November 30.
