The William Bonifas Fine Arts Center in downtown Escanaba claims the title “home to all the arts” for the Central Upper Peninsula region. Each year the Alice Uren Powers galleries in the Bonifas Arts Center host a series of local and regional art exhibitions along with traveling exhibits on loan from institutions like the Smithsonian or Detroit Institute of Arts. The center focuses most of its efforts on art created by artists of the area. An Upper Peninsula regional competitive exhibit each fall titled Northern Exposure showcases the best of the U.P.; a Bay Area Art Association show in the spring features work in all media; and special theme exhibits are featured in the summer, such as “Companions and Choices,” a quilt exhibit or “Re-Visioning Nostalgia: the Agrarian Roots of Contemporary Life.”

Quaint Gallery. Located in the downtown area of the city. Former part of a Catholic School. I was a "Thesbian" there in my high school days!!! (1961-1965).

When I visit my hometown I also stop by the Bonifas. I spent many years of my youth in the programs they provide or seeing a show they have. Great local gallery.
