Arts Missoula Office News
Year Without a Summer, Art Erupts: From Missoula to the World // Virtual Gallery Opening with Courtney Blazon
Wednesday, November 14th, 4pm
[at the Branch Center, 2nd Floor University Center, UofM]
Udo Fluck,  Director of Global & Cultural Affairs at Arts Missoula, Courtney Blazon, local artist, and Becca MacLean, Public Art Coordinator at Arts Missoula have been partnering on the creation of a virtual gallery since this past summer. Missoula, Montana has two sister cities; one in Palmerston North, New Zealand and another in Neckargemund, Germany. Global & Cultural Affairs in Arts Missoula is working to reinvigorate bonds and relationships with these cities through all means possible. The creation of this virtual gallery space will allow us to interact creatively with our sister cities by simply embedding or emailing a link for international viewers to easily navigate the art from across the world virtually instead of spending a fortune of time and resources to physically ship pieces of art work overseas.

This exhibition is titled, "A Year Without a Summer, Art Erupts: From Missoula to the World" and functions through a platform called Kunstmatrix that was created in Berlin, Germany. The organization that created this is still in its growing stages as is this virtual gallery idea itself. This entire process has been highly experimental.  Our intention is to embed this virtual gallery on our website, and send it to our sister cities in Germany and New Zealand within the next 6 months. We are also working to create a supplementary Youtube video with Courtney so she is able to provide more details on her exhibition for those overseas who are not able to physically speak with her. Thank you for reading! Please join us on Wednesday, November 14th at 4pm in the Branch Center, 2nd floor, University Center on campus. Courtney Blazon will be present to speak in more detail about her work and there will be free cake & coffee!  Facebook Event!
