Visiting Artist, Day of the Dead and more!


The School of Art is proud to bring visiting artist MARK GROTE to campus for a lecture in conjunction with his exhibition currently on display in the Gallery of Visual Arts.  Join us in Social Science room 356 on Wednesday, October 26th from 5-6pm to hear Mr. Grote discuss his work and answer questions.  Immediately following the talk, there will be a closing reception for the exhibition in the GVA.  This lecture is made possible by the Jim and Jane Dew Visiting Artist Lecture Fund.  The event is free and open to the public.


The School of Art presents the 11th Annual Day of the Dead Steamroller Print Project!  On Thursday, October 27th, from 10am to 5pm, art students and professors will gather in front of the Fine Arts Building’s University Theatre to create images from printmaking blocks using an industrial steamroller.  The relief prints will then be made into banners and used in Missoula’s Annual Day of the Dead parade.  The public is welcome to watch as our art majors create images celebrating Mexico’s national holiday. 


The Annual Student Juried Art Exhibition is fast approaching!  Be sure to turn out at the Gallery of Visual Arts to see the works of art students from all levels of instruction- from freshmen to grad students- this is one of our favorite exhibitions!  The opening reception will be from 5-7pm on Thursday, November 10th. Special thanks to this year’s juror PHOEBE TOLAND
