    Gallery Guide

The Missoula Cultural Council was formed in February 1991 as the result of a two year public planning process. A written report, The Fabric of Missoula, provided the basis for the formation of Missoula Cultural Council as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. The first of its kind in Montana, the Missoula Cultural Council is a local arts agency as defined by the National Endowment for the Arts. Soon after its formation, Missoula Cultural Council was designated an official cultural agency for Missoula County and the City of Missoula. Today, the Missoula Cultural Council supports and promotes a wide range of cultural Missoula events, including First Night Missoula, Last Best Solstice, First Friday Missoula, as well as hosts online Missoula art galleries, Missoula museum and Missoula events directories.
