Josh Smith | Bell's Brewery

KBW2014Logo.pngWe're looking for inspired artists for a special project as part of our events for Kalamazoo Beer Week 2014.

Beginning Dec. 17, we will accept designs for a Bell’s or craft beer related mosaic to be assembled with bottle caps during one of our KBW events in January.

“This is a project that celebrates our local art culture and gives back to our community,” said Laura Bell, Bell’s Vice President.

“We can’t wait to see what people come up. There are a lot of very talented Bell’s fans out there,” she added.

The completed mosaic should be no larger than 5 feet tall by 3 feet wide and will be auctioned off at the conclusion of KBW on Saturday, January 18th with proceeds going to The YWCA of Kalamazoo.

The winning artist will also receive a special Bell’s prize.
