Art Week 2023 Community Built Art Installation

“We Make Our City/Our City Makes Us” is an interactive cardboard installation that will be built throughout the month of June by City of Marquette Art Week 2023 Artist in Residence - Amber Dohrenwend. The completed installation will then be on display in July in the City’s Deo Gallery (Marquette Arts & Culture Center on the Lower Level of Peter White Public Library). The sculpture will be built with cardboard strips, cut from bicycle boxes sourced in our community, and staplers will be used to hold the strips together.

The installation process welcomes community contributions during open studio hours. All hours will be open to drop in participants. Participation is open to all ages. Under 12 must attend with an adult.

More information about the installation and Art Week can be found on
