Grand marais art colony

DEFINITION

Oldest art colony in Minnesota, it is located on the north shore of Lake Superior. Its founding dates to 1947 when Birney Quick (1912-1981) took students to Artist' Point for plein-air painting classes, which were often followed by an evening fish fry. Today participants are housed and offered studio space and classes in the village of Grand Marais. Until 1958, the Colony was administered by the Minneapolis School of Art, but that entity's supervision has been replaced by an Art Colony Board of Director. An annual juried plein-air painting exhibition and sale is held with many family events. Sources: www.grandmaraisartcolony.org/; www.grandmaraisartcolony.org/events.html
