Grand Marais Art Colony
Artist Residency Series
The Art Colony provides artists with independent work space in professional studios amidst the backdrop of a stunning landscape. An environment of creative freedom supports the process and development of new works, allowing for a combination of aesthetic inquiry, creative risk-taking, experimentation, and artistic development.
Two concurrent juried residencies are available in 2017, one in the Founders Hall multi-use Studio and one in the Eco-friendly Printmaking Studio. Juried residents are provided with two weeks of independent studio access, lodging, and a weekly stipend. Residents may choose to provide a community engagement component (optional) for an additional stipend.
Grand Marais and the Art Colony
Grand Marais has long supported the arts and is home to many artists. March is a quiet time in our community, lending itself well to a focused residency. At the same time, there are many outdoor activities within easy access including skiing, snow shoeing, and hiking.
The longest-lived art colony in Minnesota, the Grand Marais Art Colony began in 1947 as a summer refuge for artists seeking study and creative inspiration within the dynamic North Shore landscape.
Since that time, the Art Colony has served as a creative retreat and catalyst, helping people to foster a unique relationship between outdoor inspiration and artistic pursuit.
