Art Week 2020 canceled

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Division regretfully announces the cancelation of Art Week, originally scheduled for June 22-28, 2020. Like so many Marquette summer events, Art Week is a celebration of community, bringing large groups of people together. Unfortunately, concerts, art receptions, workshops and community art projects simply would not be safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The City and Art Week partners will reschedule and postpone this year’s featured performers and events until Art Week 2021.

In an effort to provide opportunities for creative expression, new community art projects will be announced shortly.

Thank you for your participation and continued support of the arts in Marquette. For more information contact the City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center at 906-228-0472 or e-mail arts- culture@marquettemi.gov.
