KALAMADOODLE CUT-OUT SPECTACULAR!

On Wednesday, November 9th, Kalamadoodle is partnering with the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center and One Well Brewing for the first ever, Cut-Out Spectacular!

We've been collecting doodles from over two years of monthly events, and we're running out of room to store them. Instead of recycling the beautiful artwork created by our attendees, we thought it would be fitting to give you a chance to cut-out and keep your own, or others, Kalamadoodle creations!

The night will feature a handful of different activities, including:

  • A takeover of the KBAC tables for awesome doodle action!
  • Paper cut-out stations
  • Beer provided by One Well Brewing
  • Live printing and demonstrations
  • Local artwork on display by Jeff Abshear
  • And so much more!


All of the artwork will be free and up for grabs, as we do not have a great way to confirm or credit each artist. Our hope is that the Kalamazoo community will enjoy the opportunity to revisit doodles created from events past, and collect awesome artwork that can be a constant inspiration in your home!

More details will be available shortly on our Facebook Event Page; stay tuned!

KALAMADOODLE'S TWO-YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY ON THE MALL

KALAMADOODLE'S TWO-YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY ON THE MALL

FOR TWO YEARS, THE KALAMAZOO COMMUNITY HAS SHOWN US THEIR DOODLES!!! Please read the details that go into this event below and stay up to date with the discussion on our Facebook Event page. 

[INSERT OFFICIALLY UNOFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE]

In partnership with One Well Brewing and Maple Hill Auto Group, the monthly drink and draw's anniversary celebration will be the finale to this year’s Tap Takeover on the Mall series.

"We wanted to be a part of Kalamadoodle's two year anniversary in a big way, and partnering with local artists and Tap Takeover for a night of community building and craft beer is a perfect way to celebrate," said One Well Brewing Owner TJ Waldofsky.

The festivities will start at 5:00pm and go until 8:00pm on the North end of the Kalamazoo Mall, between Water Street and Eleanor Street on August 17th. The outdoor event is free and family-friendly, with wristbands provided to those 21 and older.

The event will feature One Well food specials and their craft beer on tap, funk music (Groovement), and a group art show. The art show will spotlight works and live demonstrations from local artists, many who have been involved with One Well Brewing and Kalamadoodle (Patrick Hershberger, Blake Eason, Taylor Grimes, Bad Adz and more).

In August 2014, Kalamadoodle held its first drink and draw event in Kalamazoo. Since then, it has continued to gain interest from local citizens and businesses alike.

Kalamadoodle’s mission is simple-- connect people in fun and refreshing ways! "It's about making new friends and showing everyone they’re capable of being creative." says creator and co-founder, Mike Klok. By asking its attendees to, “Show Us Your Doodles,” they hope to bring the community together by engaging in their imaginations.

"Kalamazoo's unique and passionate craft beer community has been an amazing catalyst for our events," says Klok. "We're constantly inspired by the creative atmosphere that lives in the craft beer industry. There’s no doubt that it translates to the drawings we see on the tables. There are other drink and draw-style events that happen in most major cities, but the community we've built here in Kalamazoo is something special."

The downtown Tap Takeover will pay tribute to that theme and the strong bond growing in Kalamazoo's creative community. You can learn more about Kalamadoodle's Two Year Anniversary at http://www.kalamadoodle.com or visit Kalamazoo Tap Take Over on the Mall on  Facebook.

KALAMADOODLE PRESENTS - 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY

In conjunction with Alamo Drafthouse Kalamazoo, we are proud to present Stanley Kubrick's mind-blowing masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Alamo Drafthouse has generously offered to donate a portion of the ticket sales from this event towards our Dare to Doodle Campaign, so there is even more reason to be a part of this special showing!

"Be prepared. This all might sound like hyperbolic gushing, but you can’t overstate when you talk about 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. It's a film that transforms the thematic language and technological possibilities of the medium. It's about no less than man’s emergence and place in the universe. It also houses arguably the greatest special effects of all-time. It’s ambitious, big, bold and awe-inspiring. It's an experience that demands to be seen on the big screen."

James Sanford

Creative Manager - Alamo Drafthouse Kalamazoo

If you have any questions, please feel free to visit the Facebook Event Page or contact us directly. We hope to see you there!

Special Thanks: Alamo Drafthouse Kalamazoo for providing this opportunity and artist Bonus Saves for creating the promotional pieces for this event!
