January Public Art Committee happenings in Missoula, Montana

News & Updates 

MCAT Traffic Signal Box Documentary
The City of Missoula Public Art Committee is thrilled to officially release the debut of the MCAT [Missoula Community Access TV] Traffic Signal Box Documentary! This production was created during the installation process of the 2016 round of Traffic Signal Boxes. MCAT and the Missoula Public Art Committee partnered to get close-up interviews and in-action shots of Traffic Signal Box Artists and their thought processes behind this project.

Traffic Signal Box Art is such a fun and integral piece of the Missoula, Montana community. The Committee felt it would be beneficial and fun to give the public a sneak-peak into the world behind the boxes. These beautiful masterpieces pop up every year and Missoulian's deserve to hear the artists' voices behind them!
*This film was officially viewed by the public on Friday, January 5th at the Florence Building in Downtown Missoula. Thank you to Submittable, the Wine Merchant & MCAT for making the evening possible!*

The Public Art Committee again would like to thank MCAT and their crew who generously gave their time and energy through the entire creation and production of this documentary. It goes without saying that this would not have been possible without their hard work. Thanks MCAT!
