Opening Reception for Deo's September Exhibit

On Thursday, September 8th, from 6-8 p.m., the City of Marquette Office of Arts and Culture will host the opening reception for the September Deo Gallery Exhibit: Sunrises and Wild Places. Sunrises and Wild Places feature the local landscape photography by Cameron Wilcox. This stunning collection of scenery may feel familiar as Wilcox’s work is often featured by NMU, Travel Marquette, Lake Superior Magazine, and other notable publications; or perhaps, because the body of work captures the incredible natural spaces that we inhabit.

The Deo Gallery is located in the basement of the PWPL in the City’s Arts & Culture Center; it is curated monthly by the Lake Superior Art Association. The Deo Gallery’s exhibit will be up through September 1 through September 30. Receptions are free and open to the public. Light refreshments are provided. Artist talk will begin at 7:00 p.m.

The Deo Gallery: Cameron Wilcox, Sunrises and Wild Places

This work is expected to occur intermittently over the next 4 weeks. Vehicular and pedestrian access to homes will be maintained.  The work will be completed by means of short duration road closures, road detours, and flag control.  The public is urged to use extreme caution and follow all traffic control measures.  

The City of Marquette asks you for your patience during this process.

Trash to Treasure Weekend

City of Marquette residents are invited and encouraged to participate in the community-wide “Trash to Treasure Weekend” beginning Friday, September 9 at 5:00 p.m. through Sunday, September 11 at 5:00 p.m.

The purpose of the program is to provide a venue for the recycling of reusable household items such as furniture, lamps, electronics, and other working household items. The program is designed to increase awareness of “reduce, reuse, recycle” by creating an alternative means of reusing items that would otherwise end up in the landfill.

GUIDELINES

Residents can place reusable/serviceable items in front of their house on the curb no earlier than 5:00 p.m. Friday, September 9. Unclaimed items must be removed from the curb no later than 5:00 p.m. Sunday, September 11.

Removal of items will be strictly enforced in accordance with Section 22.33 of the City’s Nuisance Ordinance: It shall be unlawful for any person to accumulate rubbish or any articles or junk, except as may be necessary for construction work or normal course of a business. This public service announcement will serve as notice of violation for items left at the curb.

College students are encouraged to participate in the treasure hunt in that they may find items which will be useful to them in their dormitory or apartment.

Examples of items that can be recycled include lamps, tables, chairs, dishes, etc. Please, no rubbish. Rubbish is defined to mean anything that does not work, is not clean and is not serviceable.

Depositing unwanted items is prohibited. Once an item is in your possession it is your responsibility.

It is suggested that residents remove lawn ornaments and other wanted items to avoid mistaken identity.
