Grand Marais Art Colony 2022
The longest-lived art colony in Minnesota, the Grand Marais Art Colony began in 1947 as a Minneapolis College of Art and Design summer program. Since then, the Art Colony has become a non-profit and grown exponentially, now hosting intensive classes, supporting artist residencies, providing regional artists with studio access, and crafting several signature events, including the annual Grand Marais Arts Festival and the biennial North Shore Readers and Writers Festival.
The Art Colony provides artists with independent work space in professional studios. Our 2022 Independent Residency season runs from mid-January 2022 – April 2022 and from October 2022 – mid-December 2022. An environment of creative freedom supports the process and development of new works, allowing for a combination of aesthetic inquiry, creative risk-taking, experimentation, and artistic development.
Applications are currently being accepted for our Independent Studio Access Residency program.
Studios available for independent residencies include:
Eco-friendly Printmaking Studio
Founders Hall Multi-discipline Studio
Pill Box Multi-discipline Studio
Studio 21 Multi-discipline Studio
