Raise the Roof Fundraiser for the Grand Marais Art Colony

DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED.

THE RAFFLE WILL GO AHEAD AS PLANNED

THE TICKET WILL BE DRAWN ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19 AT 6:45 P.M. IN GRAND MARAIS.


Seating is limited. Purchase your tickets below.

Join us to celebrate and support the Grand Marais Art Colony as it expands and dreams forward. From the dynamic Schmidt Artist Lofts in Saint Paul, we’ll celebrate the expansion of the Art Colony’s physical space. Funds raised through this event will directly support crucial repairs along with rehabilitating space for artists to work. Find out more about the Art Colony’s expansion here.

We hope you will be able to join us AND bring your friends to introduce them to the Grand Marais Art Colony; the organization that for over 70 years has provided creative space on the shores of Lake Superior, supporting artists at every step in their journey.

Guests will be treated to comedic entertainment provided by Dane Stauffer.

Dane Stauffer’s recent credits include another starring turn in “Glensheen” at the History Theatre. He also starred as Scrooge in Dolly Parton’s Smokey Mountain Christmas Carol at the Ordway. (Working wtih Dolly was a highlight!) He sings regularly at Crooners Lounge in the Twin Cities, and recently performed in an indie short based on Lorna Landvik’s “Oh My Stars.” He will be directing “Annie”; at Steppingstone Theatre for Youth this fall, and he continues to teach empowerment through the arts to children and adults in all settings.
