Presque Isle Park Road Closure for Salamander Migration

In cooperation with the Superior Watershed Partnership and Northern Michigan University Biology Department, the City of Marquette will be closing a portion of Peter White Drive in Presque Isle Park to facilitate the safe migration of the blue-spotted salamander.

The southwest bend of Peter White Drive from the Ice Cream Store Pavilion to the gate north of the pavilion will close to vehicular traffic daily at 8:00 p.m. from March 15 to May 15 or until the completion of the migration.  Road barricades will be placed and removed daily to prevent vehicular traffic use of the migration area.  Foot traffic is permitted in the area during regular park hours.

Superior Watershed Partnership can be reached at (906) 228-6095.

Call for Artists: "Words to Live and Bike By" Bike Path Murals

The Marquette Public Art Commission (MPAC) invites local artists to apply to design and paint text-inspired, site-specific artworks on the surface of the Holly Greer Bike Path in Marquette.

The Words to Live and Bike By project links language, exploration, and artistic expression to invite Marquette and its visitors to connect as a community. These words - REMEMBER, RESPECT, HOPE, DREAM, and GRATITUDE - were originally selected by the Marquette Public Art Commission prior to their first installation onto the bike path in 2020. Four years later the original murals have faded and yet, the importance of these words persists. MPAC now invites a new set of local artists to reimagine the original words at the following sites:

REMEMBER: North Lakeshore along restored shoreline

GRATITUDE: South side of the Marquette Commons

DREAM: Lower Harbor/Kids Cove

RESPECT: North Lakeshore Blvd. between McCarty's Cove and Shiras Park

HOPE: Clark Lambros Beach Park

Applicants may submit multiple designs but will only be selected to create one mural. The deadline for submissions is Sunday, April 28th. Winners will be notified by May 10, 2024, with painting to occur on June 24-29, 2024 during City of Marquette Art Week.

The selected words will be stenciled on the bike path with white outline prior to painters’ arrival on-site. Completed murals will be 6 ft. in height and vary in length depending on the length of the proposed word. Selected artists will receive $300 and all necessary supplies including paint, brushes, drop cloths, etc.

For more information or to apply, a full prospectus can be found on the MQTcompass.com website, https://www.mqtcompass.com/opportunities/call-for-proposals-bikepath-murals/ For additional information, please contact the City of Marquette Office of Arts & Culture at arts-culture@marquettemi.gov or (906) 228-0472.
