Bonifas Arts encourages U.P. artists to prepare for this year’s ArtPrize. Efforts are currently underway to organize another UP contingency for this fall’s biggest international art competition. Be creative, think big, and, if you can, be prepared to volunteer. Anyone interested in helping organize this regional effort can please email Pasqua Warstler.

Hope you get the chance to see the artwork on the island before it gets packed up and brought down to ArtPrize in Grand Rapids.
The Bonifas Arts Center and the City of Marquette, Arts & Culture Center, working collaboratively with arts organizations throughout the Upper Peninsula, continue a collaboration to present the U.P. as a distinct arts and culture region and a must-see destination.
