Missoula Art Park Dedication and Artist Reception
4:30 PM
Missoula Art Museum
Description:
Missoula Art Museum, the City of Missoula, and Adventure Cycling invite the public to dedicate the Missoula Art Park with a ceremonial tree planting and an artist reception to follow. Meet the inaugural artists of the Missoula Art Park, explore the sculpture installation, and celebrate at the museum with live music, food and refreshments. Adventure Cycling will offer free tours of their facility until 6 PM. The artist reception continues at Missoula Art Museum until 7:30 PM.

The Missoula Art Park will function as an outdoor gallery, featuring changing public art installations in a highly-designed park setting that communicates the museum's commitment to contemporary art and community. The park was created by MAM in partnership with the City of Missoula and Adventure Cycling, with the endorsement of a broad spectrum of stakeholders, and thanks to the support of public and private grantors, and hundreds of businesses and individuals. It's a people's park in the best sense!

The inaugural exhibition in this newly created city park features art made with or inspired by bicycles in honor of MAM's partnership with Adventure Cycling. Artists Ann Appleby, Kim Reineking, Whitney Ford-Terry, Keith Goodhart, Jeremy Hatch, and Patrick Zentz will each create an artwork that incorporates or responds to the bicycle physically, conceptually, or abstractly.
