Built for creatives, by creatives

The Spark extends the creative community of Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (KCAD) into the wider community of West Michigan. Our collaborative and publicly-accessible retail space invites visitors to shop handmade goods from a diversity of local artists and makers while providing events and opportunities that inspire creative connection and nurture professional growth. 

 

Local art and design

We believe in a creative ecosystem that is dynamic and innovative. The Spark provides a powerful platform for local creatives and celebrates the vibrant art and design culture of West Michigan.

Collaboration

Creativity is all about connection, so we've created a retail space that's built on bringing people together. If you have creative goods to sell, ideas for programming, or just want to check out what's going on, stop by and say hi!

Opportunity

From retail to education to professional development, we thrive on seeing creative succeed! Opportunities at The Spark are always evolving to reflect the world around us.
