MISSOULA – This year’s University of Montana Homecoming Week wraps up with the annual University Center Homecoming Art Fair. The 2013 art fair will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Oct.3-4, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, 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. Along with door prizes generously donated by art fair vendors, the fair also will showcase live music performed by UM students. The event is free and open to the public.
“We invite visitors to partake in this singular shopping experience amid the lush tropical plants and atrium skylights of the University Center,” said Gwen Landquist, UC marketing and art manager.
A long-standing tradition in western Montana, 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.
