The La Pointe Center for the Arts Grant is a one-year grant offered by the La Pointe Center and is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
The purpose of the Artist in Residence Program is to provide the space and opportunity on Madeline Island for artists to focus on their ideas, create a body of work, develop a new project or research, and to expand their creativity.
The interaction with indigenous artisans, the local community, and tourists continue to enhance and establish bonds of cooperation and cultural understanding of the historic traditions of the land we all now share.
Over the years projects and artists have been brought in to enrich the artistic experience for students at the La Pointe School. These projects have been traditionally shared with the public at the La Pointe Center Gallery’s first exhibit of the season (La Pointe School Art Show).
