LSAA Update on Dog Dayz 2019 (Posted 08/25/2018)
Dog Dayz will now replace Glacier Glide.
Ending Glacier Glide was not easy, but the new Dog Dayz event gives student artists a longer show, (2 weeks instead of 5 hours ) and spent a fraction of what Glacier Glide cost us, thanks to the efforts of Renee Michaud.
When detailed information on Dog Dayz 2019 is available it will be posted here. LSAA Members who provide email addresses receive email blasts / get information as soon as it’s available. Meanwhile, last year’s information (below) may be of assistance.
LSAA Update on 2018 Glacier Glide (POSTED 12/18/2017)
For a variety of reasons, the Glacier Glide has had to be revamped.
LSAA is working with the UP200 committee and the Marquette Arts and Culture Center (MACC) to present a new student art show that will celebrate winter and the
dog sled races.
“The Dog Dayz of Winter” was held at the MACC on the lower level of Peter White Public Library, 217 N. Front St. in Marquette. The show opened with a public reception for the student artists on Saturday, February 17th from 2 to 4 pm with a variety of refreshments and goodies. The artwork remained in the workshop space until March 1. It’s also good to note the show was viewed for the UP200
during regular library hours.
All students from Kindergarten through 8th Grade (public, private , or home-schooled) were invited to participate. The theme was centered on Winter, Animals, and Dog Sledding. 2D and 3D art was accepted. Informational flyers were available at all schools across Marquette County and at the MACC after January 5th. Drop off dates for artwork at the MACC were February 13 and 14 from 1:00 to 6:00 pm, with pick-up on Friday March 2nd.
