Description:
Allez! Missoula is proud to present our second mural installation down the alleyway of 120 N Higgins, Missoula! The First building constructed at 120 N Higgins was occupied by McKay Art Company. Proprietor Rollin H. Mckay was a prolific photographer who documented Missoula the first half of the 20th Century. Today, 120 N Higgins has been beautifully reconstructed and reimagined, with its art-filled historical footprint in mind. In that vein, Allez set out to create an exhibition that drew from Missoula's past and honored the vibrant creativity of its present. Seven artists were each given a different photograph taken by McKay, or his predecessor F.M. Ingalls . The artists manipulated the photos in their respective styles. The seven artworks were then scanned, enlarge, printed and installed on the Allez walls. The resulting exhibition- Missoula Redux- hopes to convey something simultaneously old and new, connecting artists and viewers across the divide of time. Join us for an outdoor and masked celebration of the unveiling of our second installation!

Allez is incredibly excited to present our second mural installation! For this show we wanted to pay homage to Missoula's history and roots, but with a modern spin. So we invited seven amazing local artists to take historical photos of Missoula's past, and remake them into their own contemporary visions. We are proud to feature work by Courtney Blazon, Marlo Crocifisso, Anne Cruikshank, Jesse DeRosier, Theo Ellsworth, Lillian R. Nelson, and Jenna Parker.

With each project we are expanding the alleyway into our intended vision, and this time we will be exhibiting the artworks printed to mural size and hung inside our custom-made framing system.

We will host a socially distanced "opening" celebration down the alleyway of 120 N Higgins. The beauty of being outside is that distancing will be much easier, but we are still asking that you wear a mask if you cannot maintain a 6' distance.
