EXHIBITS in the gallery

Located in the Mission Point Theater lobby, the Center for the Arts gallery overlooks Lake Huron in the original main entrance to the theater. Traveling and local exhibits rotate throughout the season. Staff and volunteers are usually present to answer questions about the artwork and provide more information about arts and culture on Mackinac Island. 


The gallery is open 9-5 Monday-Saturday, and 12-5 Sunday during the Summer and early Fall months. Admission is free, but donations are encouraged. Due to COVID-19 we respectfully ask that visitors wear a mask while viewing exhibits and maintain a safe distance from other visitors in the gallery. There will be no public receptions for exhibits in 2020 unless indicated explicitly in the event description.
