High School Area Show 2024

March 30, 2024 - April 28, 2024

Since 1982, the High School Area Show has often been the first opportunity for high school artists throughout Kalamazoo and the surrounding region to enter a juried exhibition and see their artwork on the walls of a museum. Students have the opportunity to win scholarships and prizes. Last year, $1,776,000 was offered by art schools and colleges throughout the Midwest.

The KIA is proud to support future artistic talent, helping further these high school artists’ access to the arts and art education.

The High School Area Show welcomes submissions from high school artists residing in Allegan, Barry, Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Cass, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph, and Van Buren counties. Please email  with any questions.

In-person award ceremony: Friday, March 29, 2024. Free Entry on March 30.
