“Krasl Art Fair on the Bluffs”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Of the many excellent art fairs conducted nationwide each year this is one friendly and enjoyable example. The delightful scenic setting overlooks the shoreline of Lake Michigan. Sandy beach access and playful parks are a joy to kids (and parents) of all ages. Artwork presented from both nationally and regionally known artists is both astounding in the quality of their work and the friendliness that is experienced. Entertainment and refreshments are provided and the retail portion of the city is close-by and in an enjoyable setting.

“Wonderful Art Centre!”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

The Krasl is a gem in St. Joseph. It host wonderful art shows, gives classes for all ages, sponsors the sculptures that adorn the city, has a nice gift shop and sponsors one of the best Art Fairs in the country.

“Short, but nice visit”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

The Art Center was nice, but we only spent a short time there. We do enjoy art, however, there are only a few pieces to see in the building. The pieces that they do have are miniatures of the sculptures that you see both on their property and throughout the waterfront. This is a good place to stop if you would like a brochure with information on the sculptures you see near the park. It was free to visit, which was nice. (They also did mention that they have workshops and a gift shop.)

“Don't Miss It!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Sculptures greet you as you walk to the entrance. Look up as you enter the building to see a stunning yellow and orange glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly. Two large galleries host a rotating selection of art shows. Upstairs you will find classrooms and studios where various artists work and classes in several media are taught. School groups are welcome at the Krasl. A gift shop offers beautiful items for sale.

“A Must-Stop during a visit to St. Joseph”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Inside and out. The outdoor sculptures are whimsical and fun. The yellow blown-glass chandelier in the entryway is breathtaking---try to drive by at night, too. The works on display inside are interesting and laid out nicely; the curation is well-done. Fun gift shop, too.
