Marquette Public Art Commission seeks public input on Cultural Trail Project sculpture


Marquette, MI - The Marquette Public Art Commission is inviting public input for a new sculptural work as part of the Cultural Trail Project. Anishinaabe contemporary stone sculptor Jason Quigno will design, create and install the work at the new pier in downtown Marquette. The community is invited to review his proposal, entitled “Seven Grandfather Teachings,” and submit feedback online.

Online public comment will be closed Friday, September 8th at 5pm. Residents can also attend the MPAC monthly meeting on Wednesday, September 13th, to offer comments on the proposal. To view the project, visit <mqtcompass.com>

You can also hear Hans as the local host of NPR's All Things Considered news magazine. He also helps manage Public Radio 90's web content, interviews local and visiting writers and artists, works with NMU student interns, and writes the occasional news story.
