This Year, the Boys and Girls Club of Missoula partnered with Jimmy John’s and Sweet Peaks to put on the first ever Fine Arts for the Future event! On July 7th and 8th in the heart of downtown Missoula, there will be a silent auction art exhibit benefitting the Missoula Boys and Girls Club.
The silent auction will consist of ten local artists’ commissioned pieces, as well as numerous drawings from our club kids. On Friday, there will also be a live art demonstration by Ben Miller, a live band, and kid activities like face painting and coloring. We will be having documentation of the whole event through ReThink Butte.
A very unique aspect to this event is its emphasis on art programming. Throughout the event planning process, we worked with our kids to implement their artwork into this event. From the numerous beautiful drawings, 12 winners were selected and will be on display and up for silent auction on Friday and Saturday. These winners’ pieces are also featured in our 2017-2018 academic school year calendar as well which will be on sale at the event. We are also accepting donations for this programming and to put towards the building of our own club facility in 2022. The link to buy them or donate is below.
Please join us this weekend for a fun time in support of the Boys and Girls Club of Missoula!!
