Center for New Media, Arcadia Commons Campus


The Arcadia Commons Campus in downtown Kalamazoo will be the place to be during the city’s April 5 Art Hop event.

At the Center for New Media, 100 East Michigan Avenue, Kalamazoo, there will be an art exhibit featuring animation, video, game art, and character design creations by students from the Center for New Media. Art will be displayed in the South and Arcus Galleries. More than 100 entries have been submitted by students. Their work will be reviewed by professional judges. At 7 p.m., awards will be announced. Prizes of $50 each will be given to the best entries in character design, storyboarding, video, and animation. An honorable mention award will also be given for the best digital photography entry.

An opening reception runs from 5:30 to 8 p.m. and the art will remain on display throughout the end of April.

At 6:30 p.m. in room 175 at Anna Whitten Hall, the Ned Foskey Poetry Prize Reading takes place. Winners and honorable mentions in the Ned Foskey Poetry Contest will read their poems during the Art Hop. The reading is presented in conjunction with the April Art Hop Media Arts Exhibit at the Center For New Media.

Delilah DeWylde and the Lost Boys will perform a free concert at 6 p.m. at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum, 230 N. Rose St., Kalamazoo. Mixing their own self-penned songs with vintage country/honky tonk hits, rockabilly favorites, and surf gems by such artists as Hank Williams Sr., Johnny Cash, Wanda Jackson, Buck Owens, Gene Vincent, and Dick Dale, Delilah and the Lost Boys come out on stage looking and sounding like a step back in time. Dressed to the nines in the tradition of pre-color television, the band thrilled audiences across the Midwest with its spirited performances.
