Preserve creativity of arts for decades to come.

“The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts has been an integral part of the Carter
Family for three generations. This has included the Kirk Newman Art
School youth camps and adult classes, Art Detectives, ARTbreak,
docent training, exhibition openings, and annual events such as
the Holiday Sale and Arts Fair. We have enjoyed many outstanding
nationally acclaimed exhibitions, and the KIA’s permanent collection
rivals any collection for a museum of our size. Therefore, it was a “no
brainer” for us to remember the KIA in our estate plan.”
Jim and Carol Carter

“Your gifts are crucial to showing why the KIA collection is a
living treasure within the Kalamazoo community. Gifts like yours
introduce future generations to art that inspires, transforms, and fulfills.”
Chief Curator Rehema Barber
