What we do....

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Division serves to encourage, develop and facilitate a rich environment of artistic, creative and cultural activity in Marquette.

The Arts Center is located in the lower level of the Peter White Public Library. In addition to providing gallery and workshop space, it averages 263 visitors per day and provides services to more than 300 local artists and organizations.

The division was organized in 1992 and relocated to the renovated Peter White Public Library in 2000. In addition to being a regional center of arts and culture activities, the division provides the following services and programs: workshops, art exhibitions, community art projects, performance events, meeting spaces for arts organizations, an arts calendar, and coordination of national and local heritage festivals.  
This Master Plan is designed to define the City’s role in supporting arts and culture and the role of arts and culture in accomplishing the City’s broader goals, including its relationship with regional development. There were five project outcomes identified: - Identify cultural assets, needs and opportunities. - Gather input from all major stakeholders. - Develop initiatives, goals and strategies. - Define roles for the City Department and Advisory Committee. - Recommend a 10-year master arts and culture plan.
