2023 Cultivate Local Artist Holiday Guide

Welcome to the Cultivate Local Artist Holiday Guide, a signature annual program aimed at strengthening the arts community within 100 miles of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Designed to benefit both consumers and artists, this guide is not just for the holiday season; it serves as a resource all year round for discovering and investing in exceptional local art.

Program Impact for Artists

For artists, inclusion in this guide is a unique opportunity for increased visibility and sales. We know how essential an online platform is for artists, which is why this guide connects directly to artists' websites or social media. By appearing in this guide, artists are introduced to Cultivate’s expansive community of collectors, art lovers, and industry professionals.

The Importance of Local Support
Focusing our guide on artists within a 100-mile radius of Grand Rapids underscores our commitment to nurturing local talent and encouraging the community to invest in its own. We encourage our community to explore this guide when they are shopping for their needs. 


Your support of the artists featured here not only contributes to individual livelihoods but also boosts the cultural and economic vitality of our entire region.

We proudly present the artists included in this guide, as they are the heartbeat of our vibrant arts scene. Your engagement, whether as an artist, a consumer, or an arts enthusiast, contributes meaningfully to the enrichment and sustainability of the arts in West Michigan.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to our artistic community.

We believe that the arts enrich us collectively—culturally, economically, and emotionally. This guide is more than just a convenient tool; it’s an investment in our local artists and, by extension, our community.


Your decision to shop local and support these small businesses empowers artists to sustain their creative pursuits while fostering cultural diversity and economic stability in the West Michigan area.
