February Public Art Committee happenings in Missoula, Montana

News & Updates 
Missoula Public Art Committee & University of Montana School of Art Partnership

Hello Public Art Fans! The Missoula Public Art Committee is thrilled to announce a new partnership with the University of Montana School of Art. We have been working with the City of Missoula and UofM to coordinate an art call open for UofM School of Art Undergraduate and Graduate Students only. Student work will be selected by Professors and then ultimately by Public Art Committee members. When selected, student art pieces will hang in City Hall and the City Council Chambers downtown for about a 6 month period. How exciting! Pieces will be installed in the coming months. We hope this endeavor will be beneficial for all parties; not only students exhibiting work, but also community members able to view public art in city spaces.

  Be on the lookout for updates and images to come as we select and install works over the next few months. If you are interested in more information or have questions please email becca[at]artsmissoula.org.
