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 been a creative retreat and catalyst, fostering a unique relationship between outdoor inspiration and artistic pursuit. The Art Colony offers over 200 classes year-round for novice to professional artists, high-quality studio access, and several community events and exhibitions. Two concurrent juried residencies are available March 5 - 18, 2018, 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. An optional critical response critique session is also available. Note that artists may apply to work in collaboration for one residency. Additionally, the Artist-in-Residence has the option to host a community engagement project (CEP) that fits within the bounds of the Art Colony mission (see section in application). Artists will be granted a $50 stipend for the CEP and are not discounted should they choose to not host a CEP.
