About
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.”

My children have participated in many classes and events at Bonifas ranging from drawing, painting, cooking, Mother and Son SuperHero as well as acting. They do a wonderful job with children.

Their gallery is open to the public and is ever changing as well.

I've been to three exhibits so far. The best is the children's art from all the area schools. It is bright, colorful, exuberant! I will try to get all the exhibits this year. There is no charge for admission, but an offering is appreciated. The only complaint I have is the lack of weekend hours. They are open Saturdays until 3 pm.-- closed Sundays. We have also seen a couple musical performances-- really appreciated in this area where we don't get much in the way of cultural options.

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).

This community is extremely lucky to have this outstanding Art Gallery.
The space is beautiful! The staff was welcoming and helpful. The April 2016 exhibit was so inspiring and delightful. I will make a point of visiting Bonifas Art Gallery every time I'm in the Escanaba area!

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.
