Isn’t this cool? Every cadet that graduates from the Great Lake Maritime Academy at Northwestern Michigan College sends in a picture of the first boat that they are assigned to.

What has happened is the Maritime Academy has now acquired an art collection that rivals it’s sister institution of great art, the Dennos Museum Center. This collection which consists of art, maps, and photography is worth the visit to the Hagerty Center where it is located.

We tell people that this collection is just as impressive to see as the current show at the museum.
