The City of Marquette Office of Arts and Culture has recently launched a new public art directory, which showcases the city’s collection of public art and provides a platform for privately owned public art pieces. The directory, which can be found HERE, is an initiative by the City’s Marquette Public Art Commission to promote and encourage the appreciation of public art in Marquette.
The directory features a diverse range of artwork, including murals, sculptures, installations, and other public art pieces scattered throughout the city. Each listing includes a photo of the artwork, as well as information about the artist, the location of the artwork, and the medium used.
The directory is a valuable resource for both locals and tourists who are interested in exploring Marquette’s public art scene. It not only provides information on the location and type of artwork, but also allows users to learn about the artists and stories behind the pieces, giving them a deeper understanding of the inspiration and meaning behind each work. Whether you’re a resident or a visitor, the directory is a must-visit resource for anyone interested in experiencing the rich artistic heritage of Marquette.
The directory also serves as a tool for the City to track and manage its public art collection. By creating a central database of public art, the City can monitor the condition of each piece and plan for future maintenance and restoration efforts.
The directory is a living resource and will continue to grow. If you are interested in contributing to the Marquette Public Art Directory or learning more about the Marquette Public Art Commission, contact the City Office of Arts and Culture firstname.lastname@example.org or (906)228-0472
