You are invited to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Arts Weekend at Grand Hotel. Join faculty, alumni, students and friends of the College of Arts & Letters, the home of language, literature, film studies, theatre, creativity and innovation, as they convene at Grand Hotel for a celebration of the arts while enjoying the splendor of Grand Hotel and Mackinac Island.


This special weekend consists of pre-dinner cocktail receptions, exquisite meals, evening performances and interactive seminars. The MSU Department of Theatre, in partnership with the Williamston Theatre, will share a Friday stage performance of “Love Letters” and Saturday musical theatre showcase of “The Big Bang”. Other events throughout the weekend include a guided tour of the Manoogian Art Collection, a seminar highlighting work and research from the MSU Department of Art, Art History and Design with a focus on experimental three-dimensional graphic design, as well as a closer look at the historical relationship between food, culture and design presented by the College of Arts & Letters Creativity Exploratory.

You will have the opportunity to experience TourGuide, a web-based application created by MSU College of Arts & Letters students and faculty that will allow you to engage in a self-guided tour of the island with many unique stops.—

We hope to see you this year as we celebrate the 20th Anniversary!
