Since 1988 the La Pointe Center for the Arts has been involved in promoting the local arts scene. Over the years LPC has supported artists in pursuing their talents and sharing with the island community through art shows, concerts, workshops, performances, and grants.

Our Mission is to enrich the quality and vitality of the Madeline Island Community by creating opportunities for artists, promoting art education, and showcasing the arts.

The culture, history, serenity, and romance of the Island lend themselves to the creative energies of the artist. We invite you to explore and become a part of the arts on Madeline Island!

CORE

Organizations

It all began in 1988 when a group who loved Madeline Island and its art, formed a coordinating arts organization, La Pointe Center.

We are now called La Pointe Center for the Arts. We are a nonprofit umbrella organization whose goal is to fund and support groups and programs involving music, performing arts, tactile arts, visual arts, and other educational and cultural activities.

 Our core organizations help elevate a sense of awareness for, not only community members, but visitors as well. Through your support, we work to inspire minds, promote expression and creativity, stimulate business, enhance tourism, and offer enjoyment and learning for all.

Please explore our core organizations listed below and join us in supporting the arts on Madeline Island!
