Nestle into this quaint harbor arts community located between the world’s largest fresh water lake and a pristine wilderness area for a creative retreat. The Artist-in-Residence program is designed to provide artists with uninterrupted work time in a quiet, natural setting and to support the development, creation, and production of new, original works. In 2016 two residencies will be awarded. One will take place in our eco-friendly printmaking studio and one in our historic, multi-purpose studio space, founders hall. Artists can apply independently and we also invite two or more artists to apply jointly.

Grand Marais, Minnesota, is a vibrant arts destination that is home to many artists. The Grand Marais Art Colony exists to nurture creativity on the North Shore.
