On the Monday evening of Paint Grand Traverse week, artists will visit the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore to capture one of our magnificent sunsets! Named "Most Beautiful Place in America" by Good Morning America, Sleeping Bear Dunes is a treasure of the U.S. National Parks Service and hosts thousands of visitors every year. Sleeping Bear is located on the west coast of Leelanau and Benzie counties.
