Each day we find ourselves living in unprecedented times. This show asks artists to explore the idea of the before and after, whether that be on a large scale such as pre- and post- COVID-19, or on a more personal, intimate scale such as graduation, popping a bubble, or learning a new song. We are always growing and changing, moving forward through time. Positive and negative, this isn’t the world we used to know. What does that look like to you?

The University Center (UC) is the University of Montana's (UM) Student Union. With much of the Lommasson Center relocating into Aber Hall over the winter break - we realized this was an optimal time to add some additional color and art to Retail Corner (located on the northwest corner of the UC 1st floor). We are currently seeking artists' proposals for two murals themed "this is my Missoula". The selected local artists will be given a $500 material and labor stipend to complete their a (currently white) floor to ceiling pillar.
