Gallery Opening: Friday, October 6, 2023, 5-8 PM // FREE & OPEN TO ALL, with Monsters Available for Purchase (All in Support of ZACC Youth Arts Education!)
In collaboration with the MCPS Fine Arts Department // Jeannette Rankin, Russell, and Paxon Elementary
Head over to the ZACC at 216 W Main St on Friday, October 6, anytime between 5-8 PM for the 2023 Missoula Monster Project Gallery Opening! The ZACC bar will be open and folks will be able to purchase beverages for their enjoyment during the event. Monsters will be available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis – so arrive early to snag your favorite! The 9th Annual Missoula Monster Project Opening will also feature the album release party for Cowboy Andy & the Salamanders from 5 to 7 PM in the ZACC Show Room – totally free and open to all ages! Bring your kids, check out all the monsters, and rock out with Cowboy Andy & the Salamanders! There will also be MONSTER CAKE. Did we mention this is all FREE?!
The 9th Annual Missoula Monster Project will remain on display in our Main Gallery through the month of October, and purchased monsters can be taken home on October 31, so they can enjoy their favorite holiday with their new owners. Monster purchases support youth education programming at the ZACC, and are a 100% donation.
For those who are far away and can't come to the ZACC for our in-person opening, don't fret – the 9th Annual Missoula Monster Project will also be shoppable online! All youth and adult monsters will be viewable through a link on our website following the in-person opening. Some of the monsters will have been purchased by the time our online monster shop is live (as parents of youth artists always have first dibs), but many will still be available. We have a goal this year to FIND A HOME FOR EVERY MONSTER, so feel free to share the virtual gallery far and wide!
