• It's Monster Time! 8th Annual Missoula Monster Project

    The 8th Annual Missoula Monster Project

    Gallery Opening: Friday, October 7, 2022, 5-8 PM at the ZACC (216 W Main St)

    Every school year, the Zootown Arts Community Center works in collaboration with the MCPS Fine Arts Department to produce the Missoula Monster Project, one of our most beloved annual events. We want to send a big thanks to our three art teachers who participated in this year's show. Ariea Berry at Chief Charlo, Kammi Pilati at Franklin, and Candice Haster at Lowell.

    Originally conceived by nine year-old Asa Smetanka, the Missoula Monster Project is always a collaboration between school children and adult artists. Kindergartners draw a monster from their incredible imaginations, and adult artists recreate these monsters in their own medium. This year kindergarten classes from Chief Charlo, Lowell, and Franklin schools have created original monster drawings for artists to reimagine. There will be 175 Youth Artist Monsters shown side by side with the 175 Adult Artist Monsters.

    The 8th Annual Missoula Monster Project will remain on display in our Main Gallery through the month of October, so feel free to stop by and see the show after the opening if you prefer a more private experience.
