A Missoula Tradition
The UC Art Festivals are, and have been, a staple to the Missoula art culture, featuring artists both local and regional, longtime vendors and newcomers. Some of our artists have been a part of these festivals for over ten (or twenty!) years, but we always have plenty of fresh faces for each fair. With a total of three art fairs a year, we aim to show our faithful audience the beauty, creativity, and sheer talent of our artists’ creations. Each artist is accepted by a juried committee, based on quality of product, uniqueness, and level of craft.
The products featured include jewelry, pottery, clothing, hair accessories, bath soaps and salts, photography, painting, prints, drawing, wood work, home décor, sculpture, and many other things that cannot even be named yet! These artists display their wares in the lush ambience of the tropical UC atrium, with natural light shining down through the skylights.
Since 1970 (making that 45 years!), our festivals have been coordinated by students, and by participating in these art festivals, artists are supporting art programming and student organizations within the University Center.
We also feature live music from brilliant university students, making the atmosphere of the art festivals lively and vibrant.
This is the longest running art festival in western Montana, and that reputation is a testament to our hard work and consistency in providing Missoula with the best art festival it can get!
