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.

New Moon Stargazing
New Moon Stargazing

New moon nights – night when the moon is absent from the sky – make for great stargazing.

Here’s a great way to start – look due north after the sun has set and find the Big Dipper constellation [see photo] with its telltale 3-star handle and 4-star dipper.

In the summer, the dipper is at ‘9-o’clock’ and hangs dipper down.
In the autumn, the dipper is at ‘6-o’clock’ with the dipper facing up/handle to the left.
In the winter, the dipper is at ‘3-o’clock’ with the handle hanging down.
In the spring, the dipper is at ’12-o’clock’ with the dipper facing down/handle to the right.
