UM Invites Public to 2014 UC Homecoming Art Fair

This year’s University of Montana Homecoming Week wraps up with the annual University Center Homecoming Art Fair. The 2014 Art Fair will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Sept.25-26, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, in the UC Atrium.

The art fair will feature unique art, jewelry, clothing, ceramics and more, all of which has been handcrafted by local and regional artists. Many artists are veterans to this art fair, and have attended this event faithfully for over 10 years. Along with a prize raffle, the fair also will showcase live music performed by UM students and Montana natives, including Michael Zarling and Ian Strahn. The event is free and open to the public.

The longest running art fair in western Montana (going on over 40 years consecutively), the Homecoming Art Fair is one of three student-coordinated art fairs planned annually by the UC. Proceeds from the art fairs provide funding for myriad student-focused programs planned by UC Student Involvement.
