City of Marquette looking for Art Week proposals

MARQUETTE, MI— 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 that 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 25. 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.
