3 Opportunities for Montana Artists: Apply Now
With the recent news of Montana native Lily Gladstone's history-making Golden Globe win, it's a wonderful reminder that Montana has many talented artists.
For artists looking to share their work, or receive funds to further their art, here are three opportunities with application deadlines coming up.
Complete an Artist Residency at Flathead Lake
If you are an artist who also has an interest in science, you may be interested in the Artist-In-Residence program through Open Air that offers a residency at the Flathead Lake Biological Station through The University of Montana.
Artists of all kinds are encouraged to apply, including writers, musicians, and dancers as well as visual artists. The application deadline has been extended but it is coming up soon so if you are interested in this one, get your application in soon.
Application Due: January 18, 2024
Paint a Mural in Downtown Missoula
We recently reported on an opportunity for mural artists or painters to have their work displayed on some of Missoula's most iconic walls. Two opportunities include walls on businesses you know and love, like Montgomery Distillery and Worden's Market, but there are other opportunities too. Learn more and apply for a Downtown Arts & Culture Impact Grant.
Application due: February 29, 2024
Receive an Arts Missoula Grant
The organization that puts on Missoula on Main is offering grants to Missoula County Artists. This opportunity is for artists "currently working in the field of visual or performing arts" and emphasizes interaction with the community. Grant amounts are up to $2,000 and there is a $15 application fee.
For anyone interested in applying you can get a peek at the grant application judging panel rubric as a guide to make your application as strong as possible. You can also see videos from the artists who have won grants in the past.
