The Contemporary

Founded in 2021, The Contemporary at Northern Waters Resort is a gallery specializing in modern and contemporary art located in the Dancing Eagles Hotel. It is unique as it is the first tribally owned contemporary art gallery in the nation.

The Contemporary at Northern Waters Resort's vibrant contemporary program features the work of leading regional, national and international artists. Additionally, unparalleled exhibitions are prepared and presented on the work of legendary artists such as the inaugural show featuring the work of the elusive British street artist Banksy.

The gallery publishes monthly and bi-monthly online prospectuses soliciting artists to exhibit in their juried shows as well as sponsoring annual themed exhibits featuring the exclusive works of regional artists. It is truly the focal point of the arts in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and it is proudly owned and operated by the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians.
