‘The Seasons of Mackinac’ Open House and Reception

“The Seasons of Mackinac” will be celebrated with awards and a reception outside The Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum. This event is open and free to the public. Co-sponsored by Mackinac Associates and the Mackinac Arts Council.

While Mackinac has always been known as a “summer gathering place,” its beauty is unparalleled in all seasons. We encourage artists working in all media to share with us their artistic visions of Mackinac Island and the Straits of Mackinac through the seasons. Subjects may be historic buildings, dramatic limestone formations, tranquil vistas, forested trails, water views, or whatev­er subject best captures the artist’s vision of Mackinac.
