The William Bonifas Fine Arts Center is a friendly spot in the central Upper Peninsula where you can tour gallery exhibits, participate in art workshops, learn something new in the educational classes and enjoy theatrical productions. The Alice Uren Powers Gallery hosts a variety of traveling exhibits as well as displays by regional artists throughout the year, while the Studio Gallery spotlights area art groups. There’s no charge to visit the exhibits, so drop in often! The Kasota Gallery in the foyer on 7th Street currently houses items for sale at the Bonifas from a variety of regional artists.
