JULY EXHIBITS: KATHLEEN MOONEY AND PAULA KIESLING

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center announces its July LSAA Gallery
exhibition: “Orkney Inspirations – Scotland” by Kathleen Mooney. The 28 acrylic and
water media paintings in this show are abstract landscapes of the islands of Orkney,
Scotland. The art and archeology from the islands of north Atlantic Europe have been the
artist’s principal inspiration for the last two decades. A special feature of this exhibit is
free verse poetry that responds to the World Heritage Neolithic sites of Orkney.
Mooney’s paintings are exhibited in national and international art competitions, cultural
centers and museums.
The SmallWorks Gallery will feature work by Paula Kiesling. Paula Kiesling
incorporates different elements into her pieces that create a tactile, as well as visual,
feature. She is influenced by mythology and a love of nature. Incorporating fiber beads,
wood, stones and other exotic bits and pieces makes her art natural and inspirational.
Both exhibits will be displayed from July 1 to 31 with an artist reception on Wednesday,
July 18 from 3 to 6 p.m. The public is invited to attend and refreshments will be
provided.
The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center is in the lower level of the Peter White
Public Library. For more information or questions, please contact 228-0472 or email artsculture@

LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE KICK-OFF MEETING SCHEDULED

Commission and planning & zoning consultant McKenna Associates of Michigan, will host an openhouse
style kick-off meeting for the project of creating a Land Development Code for the City. The

codes, and create a user-friendly document that updates and combines various ordinance/code
elements. The intended impacts of this project are to update zoning districts and standards, to incorporate
new standards for increased environmental protection and the mitigation of the negative impacts of
urbanization and growth, and to reduce the complexity of the current land-use ordinances and reduce the
number of variance cases caused by outdated standards. The envisioned Code document will be
designed to assist in implementing the City’s vision to become a premier sustainable community with a
strong sense of place that provides unique opportunities for living, learning and business.

Have you ever wondered why the lakeshore in Marquette's Lower Harbor is so open to public use today compared to years past? Brownfield projects, in coordination with the City of Marquette, the State of Michigan and private developers, have had a transformative effect on lakeshore access and recreation opportunities.

The harbor was was once the home to multiple working ore docks, piles of coal, fuel tanks and industrial refuse. Now, thanks to years of work remediating environmental contamination, creating new public spaces, and developing brownfield sites, Lower Harbor is a place for pedestrians, cyclists, boaters, residents and visitors to recreate and enjoy the Lake Superior shoreline.
