Jon Reeves, director of technical theatre at Kalamazoo College, will participate in the 30-year anniversary celebration of the Park Trades Center, held this weekend (Aug. 17-18) in the former warehouse that has been an art hub in downtown Kalamazoo for three decades. When he’s not guiding K students through the process of building sets for the College’s theatre productions, Jon creates fine art metalwork in Suite 123 at the Park Trades Center. He has been renting space in the building since 1989. On Friday from 5-9 PM, he will join more than 60 artists’ who will open their studios throughout the four-story building to the public to enjoy live music and refreshments, observe demonstrations, and participate in several Community Art Projects. Jon will give blacksmithing demonstrations and talk to visitors during the open house. On Saturday, he will teach basic coppersmithing and blacksmithing techniques to young students during private studio sessions.
