The City of Marquette is proud to present the seventh annual City of Marquette Art Week, June 20-June 25, 2022. A week full of special events hosted along the lakeshore in City park spaces dedicated to arts and culture including exhibits, concerts, workshops, installations, demonstrations, and live performances. Art Week is made possible thanks to collaboration with over 200 local artists, businesses, organizations, and other community partners and is supported by the Michigan Arts and Culture Council.
This year we move to the lakeshore, from Carp River to Presque Isle, to explore what Water means to us. Daily locations are centered around different public places along the shoreline and are inspired by the City’s new cultural trail project. Headlining events include a kickoff concert by Hiawatha Music Co-op at Presque Isle Park, Musical Performance and Poetry at South Beach Park, Presque Isle Artist Market, the annual Fresh Coast Plein Air Painting Festival, performances by the Marquette City Band and local Anishinaabe-based Rock Band Waawiyeyaa, Sister Cities partnering with the Marquette Symphony Orchestra Summer Strings for a Finnish Midsummer celebration, Art Stroll downtown, a Wednesday Artist Market at the Marquette Commons, It’s All About Love sidewalk chalk festival by the UP Children’s Museum, performances by TaMaMa Dance Company and Superior Strings Alliance, a Closing Concert curated by Michael Waite hosted at the Lighthouse Park, and many more popup artist demos, workshops, music, performances, installations, and exhibits to explore throughout the week!
