The High School Art Show features over one hundred local student artists from Marquette Senior High School, Negaunee High School, Ishpeming High School, Northstar Academy, and Gwinn High School. This vibrant exhibit offers all different types of art styles and mediums, including ceramics, acrylics, portraits, pencil drawings, and watercolor. The exhibit will also highlight the artwork of students participating in the city led Artists in Excellence program.
