Krasl Avant-Garde(n) Party:
Be Unexpected. Be Imaginative. Be Here.
Krasl Art Center invites the community to their newly redesigned grounds to celebrate the successful completion of the Sculpting Community project.
Fri., Aug. 16, 2019, St. Joseph, Mich. - The community is invited to celebrate the completion of fundraising for Krasl Art Center’s (KAC) new front yard. The Avant-Garde(n) Party is a free community gathering for all ages on Sunday, September 8, from 2 - 5 PM.

Watch thrilling acrobatics on the Oval Lawn, and learn a tumbling trick! Sip and savor unique mocktails celebrating summer flavors crafted by mixologists using Fruitbelt Soda . Create decadent and funky confections alongside Love and Macarons' Mandy Krause . Contribute to a community art project inspired by the Inhaling the Universe exhibition. Enjoy a performance by the Deep Fried Pickle Project (2:15 PM) and construct instruments out of household objects (3:30 PM)! And what party is complete without giant bubbles?!

The Avant-Garde(n) Party is a thank-you for the community's support of KAC’s $1.8 million grounds redevelopment. This redesign brings the center’s new mission, to “inspire meaningful change and strengthen community through the visual arts,” outdoors and makes art accessible to members and visitors alike. KAC's Avant-Garde(n) Party furthers this mission by sharing unique performances, community-based art projects, and dynamic experiences at this free-to-all celebration.

The Krasl Avant-Garde(n) party is underwritten by 1st Source Bank Wealth Advisory Services.
