The Mission

The Grand Marais Art Colony fosters the exploratory growth and experimental power of contemporary artists.

Who We Are

Boundary Waters are to the north; Lake Superior is to the south. We explore visual arts in that liminal space between. We exist to advance the aesthetic inquiries and experimentations of artists. We are an artist-centered space offering residencies, studio sessions, and exhibitions. We are a welcoming community that supports risk-taking and self-discovery; we are an immersive gathering place where you can germinate and exchange ideas, inspirations and techniques.

What We Believe

  • Artistic expression connect us with our internal and external lives
  • Artists need time, space, and uninterrupted focus to create work
  • Dialogue and partnership are critical for all stages of creative development
  • Dialogue enhances the artistic process and develops shared understanding
  • Connecting through the arts forges robust communities
