What we do....

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Division serves to encourage, develop and facilitate a rich environment of artistic, creative and cultural activity in Marquette.

The Arts Center is located in the lower level of the Peter White Public Library. In addition to providing gallery and workshop space, it averages 263 visitors per day and provides services to more than 300 local artists and organizations.

The division was organized in 1992 and relocated to the renovated Peter White Public Library in 2000. In addition to being a regional center of arts and culture activities, the division provides the following services and programs: workshops, art exhibitions, community art projects, performance events, meeting spaces for arts organizations, an arts calendar, and coordination of national and local heritage festivals.


May LSAA Gallery Exhibit

Featuring the LSAA Member's Show

May Smallworks Gallery

Featuring Carolyn K. Snyder

The SmallWorks Gallery features an exhibit by Carolyn K. Snyder. Snyder served as an illustrator at the Medical College of Wisconsin, creating black and white line drawings for teaching and research publications. After retiring to Marquette in 2002, she began painting again. Portraits from Life will feature oil painting portrait sketches. These 90-minute sketches were completed in one afternoon and are not considered to be finished portraits. The landscape of the human face is a continuing fascination to Snyder and these portraits are painted from live models. Her first concern is depicting the nuances in features accurately to capture the likeness of the model.
