At an age when most kids were still trying to make simple cabins out of Lincoln Logs, carpenter and furniture designer Jake Blok was learning how to measure and cut real wood.

There must be something in the water that attracts so many writers and poets to Kalamazoo.

While next month’s Gilmore International Keyboard Festival is all about celebrating what pianos can do, it's not often that we examine what they are made of. 

The festival has partnered with the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts to present the photography exhibition "Inside Steinway," a series of images of the inside of the storied piano factory, shot by photographer Christopher Payne.

The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts is showing an exhibit called “Fantastic Rumpus” featuring more than 30 illustrators influenced by the late Maurice Sendak—the author of the popular children’s book Where the Wild Things Are. The exhibit is up until February 9th. 

Photos from the exhibit Calling Michigan Home will be at the upcoming Kalamazoo Institute of Arts holiday sale. The exhibit shows ten photographers’ different perspectives on Michigan’s many landscapes.
