In Cook County Minnesota, artists and artisans thrive on natural inspiration. The rugged northern Minnesota landscape and the vibrant Ojibwa culture of Grand Portage inspires the arts for which Grand Marais and Cook County are renowned.
Our museums and galleries are just steps away from breathtaking lakes, waterfalls, mountains, and miles of hiking trails. Here, our history is alive, and present to this day through the arts - perhaps that’s why the historic hubs of trading and pioneer life are now vibrant centers of commerce, art, and recreation.
Here are some ways to feed your own inspiration and creativity:
We hope you find your muse in the beauty, culture, and history.
