The 2013 exhibition, "People of Mackinac," at The Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum highlights the array of individuals that make Mackinac Island a unique destination, and is not strictly portraits, but broadened to include any work of art combining "Mackinac" and "people." This exhibition demonstrates the human element in the past, present and future of Mackinac Island. This independently juried exhibition is open to the public until mid-October.
