In 2024, the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts (KIA), a leading nonprofit art museum and school, will begin a yearlong Centennial celebration with various exhibitions, events, and programs to commemorate its 100th anniversary. Since 1924, the KIA has offered art classes, exhibitions, lectures, events, activities and a permanent collection. The KIA’s mission is to cultivate the creation and appreciation of the visual arts in West Michigan. We believe the visual arts are for everyone. They inspire, fulfill, and transform.
