MISSOULA – This year’s University of Montana Homecoming Week wraps up with the annual University Center Homecoming Art Fair. The art fair will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Sept. 24-25, in the UC Atrium.

The art fair will feature unique art, jewelry, clothing, ceramics and more, all handcrafted by local and regional artists. Along with door prizes 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 assistant director for marketing and art programs.

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 benefit student-focused programs planned by UC Student Involvement.
