The Bonifas Arts Center presents The Inspiring UP: A Photography Competition, a regional juried photography competition for professional and non-professional photographers.
This exhibit combines work by two of our leading Upper Peninsula photographers, Michael Olson and Paul Rose, with the artwork selected from U.P. artists for this competition. It is an opportune time to link both our emerging and our experienced artists in a celebration of a cherished subject matter, the Upper Peninsula. Whatever your experience, join us in celebrating insights into the land above the bridge.
Whether you’re inspired by waterfalls, lighthouses, historic sites, mighty ore freighters, deep forests, northern lights, or the rugged and unique individuals of the U.P., we invite you to let the U.P.’s natural resources and lifestyle inspire you to shoot and share. Share your UP images; landscapes, lifestyles, history, and show us how the U.P. “UPlifts” you!
