The City of Marquette Office of Arts & Culture is currently accepting requests for projects to take place during this year’s City of Marquette Art Week, scheduled for Monday, June 20 – Saturday, June 25, 2022.

Art Week is an annual event held during the last full week of June that invites local artists, organizations, and businesses to come together, collaborate, and present a series of free arts and cultural events, concerts, workshops, performances, exhibits, demonstrations, and more for the Marquette community.

Proposed Art Week projects should connect to and play off of this year’s theme of Water, inspired by the City’s Cultural Trail initiative. The Cultural Trail will celebrate Marquette’s cultural heritage and natural environment connecting historic and culturally significant locations and natural features along the City’s multi-use pathway through public art, space design, and interpretive signage. Art Week particularly seeks projects that explore the shoreline, its history, and spectacular landscape from the Carp River to Presque Isle.

Artists and organizations interested in proposing a project must complete and submit a proposal form, linked below, by Sunday, March 13.

Requests for funding assistance of up to $400 are also being accepted via the same form, made possible thanks to support from the Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs. Please review the guidelines for funding opportunities prior to submitting the form.
