RECONNECTING OUR COMMUNITY THROUGH A SHARED LOVE OF THE ARTS

HOME IS...

Home is shelter, nostalgia, heritage, habitat... It is a feeling, it is natural and built place, home can be found, home can be made. Home for some is a nest of safety, while others live in a swirl of uncertainty. What does home mean to you?
Home is our 2023 theme

Art Week connects our community through the arts

Through Art Week, we hope to build partnerships & collaborations among the incredible array of creatives and non-creatives residing in Marquette, MI.

Through the cross-disciplinary and “out of the comfort zone” projects created for Art Week, we hope to empower and inspire the creative community to build lasting connections, learn new skills and strive for artistic excellence.

Art Week Inspires fresh eyes on the familiar

Art Week invites us to stumble upon the creations of our own neighbors and friends. Performances of all kinds are often and everywhere throughout the week. Installations and exhibits turn ordinary spaces into a new realm to explore. 

Art Week invites everyone to engage with the arts; to try something new and learn more about our local life through fresh perspectives. Every resident is an audience member during Art Week, creations can be discovered around every corner!

Art Week emphasizes accessibility

Art Week ensures that everyone experiences the joy of inspiration. Endless opportunities occur throughout the week for artists and audience to meet in the swirl of creative energy. Art Week events are free to enjoy and are primarily held outdoors in public spaces to maximize approachability.

Art Week welcomes all levels and forms of creatives to engage with their community. Inspired to create? Connect with us and we’ll see how we can best support your big idea!
