    Love art? Then this is one event you won't want to miss!

    For over 35 years this two-day show features more than 75 local and regional artists who sell their original art and fine crafts on the downtown Kalamazoo walking mall. This outdoor juried show features everything from jewelry to pottery and sculptures to garden art.

    June Jubilee weekend, the official kick-off to summer in Kalamazoo, also features the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, Annual KIA Fair, acclaimed for hosting high-quality juried art works from over 150 artists; Art Hop, an evening of art exhibits and events held on the first Friday of every month, the Do Dah Parade, a fun, innovative, and parody-filled parade that takes place in Downtown Kalamazoo, and Concerts in the Park, Sunday afternoon concert in Bronson Park 

    Art on the Mall is located on the Kalamazoo Mall in the heart of Kalamazoo as well as South Street.  Art on the Mall has 60 artist booths, art demonstrations and lively entertainment. 

    New this year for Art on the Mall participants is the ability to apply on line through Zapplication.  The ZAPP®  process enables individual artists to apply online to multiple art shows through one central website, The online application process also allows artists to directly upload digital images of their artwork for jury review. The result is that all artwork in the system is in a consistent, high-quality, digital format. The digital images are presented to the jurors of each show and the system allows them to score online.

    Support for Art on the Mall and Zapplication was provided to the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo through grant funding from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
