In lieu of this year’s Art on the Rocks Fine Art Show, we’re partnering with Marquette Mountain Resort, Lake Superior Art Association, and the City of Marquette Office of Arts & Culture for the first ever Art on the Mountain, September 11-12, 2021 at Marquette Mountain!

Art on the Mountain will include a fine art fair, art activities and face painting for kids, plein air painting, an art auction to support Lake Superior Art Association, live music and dancing in the evenings, and more! In addition, Marquette Mountain Resort will have an active chairlift to bring patrons to the top of the Mountain to enjoy one of the best views in Marquette, and hike or bike down.

The weekend will conclude with the 24th Annual City of Marquette Art Awards ceremony and reception, a black-tie affair honoring individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to arts and culture in Marquette.

Marquette Mountain will have a full-service bar for artists and patrons, with indoor seating and outdoor picnic tables and fire pits.

The Art on the Mountain Art Fair will be held on Saturday, September 11 from 11:00am-6:00pm and Sunday, September 12 from 11:00am-4:00pm. Artists will also have the option of keeping their booth open on Saturday evening to show and sell work during live music.

Interested artists should apply by August 22, 2021. Entry fees and images of your work are due along with your application in order for your application to be considered complete.

** This is a juried show. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance following the application deadline. Upon notification, entry fees will be deposited and non-refundable. Declined applicants will have their checks returned, or be refunded if paying via PayPal.

After many difficult discussions, due to ongoing questions and planning concerns around COVID-19 restrictions, we have decided to cancel this year’s Art on the Rocks, originally scheduled for July 24-25, 2021.

We look forward to seeing you next year! Save the date: the 2022 Art on the Rocks Fine Art Show is scheduled for July 30-31, 2022. Applications for our 2022 Show will be open January 1 – March 31, 2022.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Stay safe this summer, and we look forward to seeing you in full strength next year!
