This unique exhibition is a part of Salamander Days: an awareness campaign supporting the migration of the Blue Spotted Salamander on Presque Isle Park. Submissions must be inspired by the Blue Spotted Salamander and other subtle signs of spring. Signs of Spring runs April 1- June 10, 2022 at City Hall located at 300 West Baraga Avenue in Marquette.
To be eligible, drop off artwork at City Hall (300 W Baraga) on Monday, March 28, from 10am to 5pm. Artwork must be 2D and wired (no saw tooth hangers) ready for hanging or it will not be accepted. All artwork must be original and identified on the back/underside, with the artist’s name, title and medium. Awards will be presented in the following categories: (Pre-K-4th grade, 5th-8th, 9th-12th, and Adult). Artwork will be considered for the best representation of signs of spring based on local relevance, environmental appreciation, and artistic merit. There will also be an award for Community Choice.
