The City of Marquette Office of Arts & Culture is currently accepting proposals for projects to take place during this year’s City of Marquette Art Week, scheduled for Monday, June 19 – Saturday, June 24, 2023.
Art Week is an annual event held during the last full week of June. Art Week invites local artists, organizations, and businesses to come together, collaborate, and present a series of free arts and cultural events, concerts, workshops, performances, exhibits, demonstrations, and more for the Marquette community.
Proposed Art Week projects should connect to and play off this year’s theme of Home, inspired by the City of Marquette’s Community Master Plan Update. The Community Master Plan will provide a long-term vision for Marquette’s growth; Art Week particularly seeks projects that will explore our community’s ideas of what “Home” means and how arts and culture can help us envision our future.
Artists and organizations interested in proposing a project must complete and submit a proposal form by Friday, February 24. Funding opportunities are also available for qualifying projects through a grant received from the Michigan Arts & Culture Council. Full information, guidelines, and a link to the proposal form are available through the Marquette Compass Art Week homepage, www.mqtcompass.com/artweek.
The Office of Arts & Culture will be hosting two Art Week Planning and Brainstorming Sessions on Wednesday, January 25 from 2:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.-7:00 p.m. for anyone interested in sharing ideas, seeking resources and collaboration, or simply learning more about Art Week and the Community Master Plan Update.
Please contact the Office of Arts & Culture with any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org or (906) 228-0472.
