Hurley Park Mural Red Ribbon Cutting - Monday, August 29

The City welcomes Marquette’s first Basketball Court Mural at the Hurley Park Playground, made possible by the City of Marquette’s Public Art Fund. The red ribbon cutting for Fast Break by Detroit based artists Joey Salamon and Ivan Montoya will take place on Monday August 29, 2022, at Noon. The Hurley Park Playground is located on Mesnard Street in Marquette. This is a great opportunity to meet the artists before they head home to Detroit and learn more about this unique addition to Marquette’s Public Art Collection.

The Court will not be available for foot traffic until the mural is sealed later that week.

Announcing the New Annual Art Award: Arts Innovation

The City of Marquette Office of Arts and Culture announces a partnership with Innovate Marquette SmartZone in the creation of a new award for the 2022 Annual Art Awards; the Arts Innovation Award. After 25 years of honoring the Marquette creative community, it is apparent that recognition is required for those who think outside the box and take risks in their process.

The Arts Innovation Award recognizes individuals who have exceptional creative thinking in their work and evidence of expansion in their perspectives and practice. Nominees should have demonstrated new methods, use of new technology, unique collaboration, unexpected use of materials, and develop new processes and collaborations that foster inclusivity and diversity.

The Arts Innovation Award is open to traditional and contemporary artists of all mediums and forms; or could recognize an individual or business that purposefully incorporated artists or creative techniques to their process or product design.

The nomination period for the Arts Innovation Award is open and will end Tuesday, September 6. The nomination form can be found at www.mqtcompass.com/annual-art-awards or HERE

The 25 Annual Art Awards ceremony will occur Saturday October 8, 2022 and is free and open to the public to attend. For more information or questions, please contact the City of Marquette Office of Arts and Culture 906-228-0472 or arts-culture@marquettemi.gov.
