Call for art

Zootown Arts Community Center and SPARK! Any Given Child Missoula are teaming up to showcase the second annual Missoula Monster Project. Originally conceived by 9-year-old Asa Smetanka, this show is a collaboration between children and adult artists, working together to create “monster art” based on monsters dreamed up by the children. Kindergarten classes from three Missoula County public schools (Lowell, Paxson, and Rattlesnake) will create original monster pieces. Organizers will assign each local adult artist a child’s monster to interpret, using his/her own unique style and medium. The results will be displayed in a Sept. 11 art show, featuring both the original child-drawn monsters and the artists’ own interpretations, from 5:30 to 8:30 at the ZACC. Proceeds from the show go to help sponsor arts programming for MCPS students. Artists interested in taking part can email missoulamonsterproject@gmail.com.

Sandpiper Art and Gift Gallery will hold the Flathead Lake Festival of Art, a two-day, juried fine art festival in Sacajawea Park, in conjunction with fifth annual Blues Festival on Aug. 15-16. To download an application or for more information, visit sandpiperartgallery.com or flatheadlakebluesfestival.com.
