Call for Artists - MRHC Holiday Art Sale




We are excited for the 2023 Holiday Art Sale happening again at the Marquette Regional History Center. 2022 was a fantastic year with over 1,000 shoppers and we anticipate a great year for 2023. We are looking forward to hosting local and regional artists. The History Center is a destination, providing holiday shoppers a beautiful space to shop the juried artist’s sale, visit world class exhibits, an old-fashioned bake sale, MRHC membership drive and other surprises, too. Booth rental fees and the small $2 admission will support the MRHC, a private non-profit 501c3 organization. Thank you for your interest in participating in the Sale!
