The Peter White Public Library, City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center, and Evolve MQT will host an open studio with Marquette creative-in residence Julie Reneé Benda from May 13th through May 18th. Benda is an interdisciplinary artist with a practice in print, illustration and sculpture. She studied both art and botany at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and later completed a Master of Fine Arts degree at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Using wood, text and image she works on projects that interact with and narrate shifting boundaries of land, water, people and plants. The community is invited to visit with the artist, see the process and discuss the overlap of print, wood, and storytelling. Open Studio is free and open to the public. Hours listed below:
- Monday through Friday: 1 to 4 p.m.
- Tuesday: 5 to 8 p.m.
- Saturday: 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m.
Open Studio will take place at the lower level of the Peter White Public Library located at 217 North Front Street, Marquette. For more information please call the City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center at 228-0472 or email email@example.com.
