The Missoula Art Museum has changed the time and format for an event on Thursday with exhibiting artist Jaune Quick-to-See Smith.

Smith will come to the MAM for an informal tour of "In the Footsteps of My Ancestors," a touring exhibition that's in the MAM's largest gallery. The tour and a light reception are scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday,Nov. 16.

Smith, who was born in St. Ignatius and is an enrolled member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, has shown her work around the world over the course of her decades-long career. The artist, based in Santa Fe since the 1970s, has maintained strong ties to her home state: she donated a copy of every print in her oeuvre to help the MAM start its collection of indigenous contemporary art.

The exhibition is on view until March 10. For more information, go to missoulaartmuseum.org or call 406-728-0447.
