Annual Events

After receiving a great deal of positive feedback from last years' "Peaceful People," the Erickson Center for the Arts (ECA) decided to carry on this tradition as an annual exhibit. This years' exhibit consists of two different themes. Wooden kites now stand where the Peaceful People once were. Throughout the yard visitors will also find trees and railings covered in yarn, otherwise known as "yarn bombing."



The kites will stand next to the Center through Labor Day, providing continuous color and joy to the field. They will then be sold as art at this years' Art on the Lake, an ECA annual event, on August 30.

Arts &Theater
07:30 PM
Location: Lake Superior Theatre, Marquette
A touching musical of two soul mates navigating the perils of life featuring amazing Maggie and Amy Malaney, Patrick Bradley, and Marty Martello. The two-character story spans fifty years, from 1895 to 1945, as it focuses on the ups and downs experienced by Agnes and Michael Snow throughout their marriage. From the wedding night innocence of ''Goodnight'', to the hat-and-cane sophistication of ''It's A Well-Known Fact'', to the fun vamping of ''Flaming Agnes'', to the bouncy ''When The Kids Get Married'', to the 11:00 ballad ''What Is A Woman?'', there is something for all musical tastes. From suffering through affairs, the angst of raising children, and growing old together, the challenges and joys of relationships are ALL here in this wonderful score of I Do! I Do!

Lake Superior Theatre presents: I Do! I Do! (musical)

Arts &Theater
07:30 PM
Location: Lake Superior Theatre, Marquette
A touching musical of two soul mates navigating the perils of life featuring amazing Maggie and Amy Malaney, Patrick Bradley, and Marty Martello. The two-character story spans fifty years, from 1895 to 1945, as it focuses on the ups and downs experienced by Agnes and Michael Snow throughout their marriage. From the wedding night innocence of ''Goodnight'', to the hat-and-cane sophistication of ''It's A Well-Known Fact'', to the fun vamping of ''Flaming Agnes'', to the bouncy ''When The Kids Get Married'', to the 11:00 ballad ''What Is A Woman?'', there is something for all musical tastes. From suffering through affairs, the angst of raising children, and growing old together, the challenges and joys of relationships are ALL here in this wonderful score of I Do! I Do!
