Words Like Water – An ART WEEK 2022 Project

In conjunction with the City of Marquette Art Week 2022 theme of “Water”, the Foundation created a public art project: 5 signs on the city’s Cultural Trail. Each sign will have art by U.P. artist, Christopher Schmidt and a poem by poets: Kimberly Blaeser, Michelle Menting, Margaret Noodin, Keith Taylor and the current Upper Peninsula Poet Laureate, M. Bartley Seigel.
