Art on the Rocks is a respected art show, attracting over 140 artists and 10,000 people each year. In 2019, over the weekend of July 27th and July 28th, the show will celebrate its 61st annual fine art and crafts festival in Mattson Lower Harbor Park, between Marquette’s historic downtown and the Cinder Pond Marina on beautiful Lake Superior. To ensure that the displayed artwork continues to meet the highest standards, 30 percent of the show is made up of artists invited based on a scoring system used by show judges, and the other 70 percent are selected through a jury process.
