      Art on the Rocks celebrates 56 years in Marquette

      The 56th annual Art on the Rocks Festival got going Saturday at Marquette's Mattson Lower Harbor Park.

      Artists from all over Michigan and some from out-of-state were set up selling various forms of art including crafted wooden chairs, paintings and pictures and even art made out of glass.

      The owner of Second Life Art said the festival has achieved national noteworthiness because of the quality of its art, which is reinforced by the support Marquette shows for the arts in general.

      "What's really nice is its actually made by the people that are here. It's hard to find things made in America now. It's nice that Marquette does support the arts and supports the artists, and I think that's why they get the quality work here." said Second Life Art owner Kate Hetzel, who specializes in recycled glass art.

      The event ran from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.

      In case you missed it, it continues Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
