North Country Seasons

Artists in Ashland and Bayfield Counties and tribal lands have contributed watercolors, oils and pastels, regalia, jewelry, birch bark and woodwork, quilts and weavings, and rosemaling to celebrate the seasons. The Art Show will be open for viewing beginning the summer of 2021 at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center. It is a project of the Chequamegon Bay Area Arts Council. 
The project is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment of the Arts. 

Join us for a special event that includes performances, workshops and a nature walk on September 24 and 25. Check out the events listing for more information.  




The Exhibit Hall
Celebrate the History and Heritage of Lake Superior
Time: Allow 30 minutes for exploration

Step back in time! Listen to spirited songs of voyageurs singing as they paddle their fur laden, 35-foot birch bark canoe across Lake Superior. Peek inside an 18th century fur trade post. Feel the pulsating rumble of an explosion in a deep-shaft iron mine. Our unique displays stage an overview of human cultures interacting with the land and natural resources of the Northern Great Lakes region, from the Ice Age to the present.
