Special Events at Grand Marais Art Colony

Grand Marais Art Colony | Grand Marais MN

In order to protect the health and safety of our community, we have cancelled summer programming through August 31, 2020, including all on-site classes and activities, and our annual Arts Festival.

We are exploring ways to pivot our programming to an online platform. Look for GMAC on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to find information and ways to engage.

Lupine Season
Lupine Season

Lupine bloom from mid- to late-June, and can be found in full sun ditches, and hillsides. Look for lavender, purple, pink, fuschia and bi-color blooms.

Note – this beauty is an invasive and is crowding out natives, so many folks are working hard to cut them back.
