Maximum Enrollment: 20
Have you walked across campus and noticed the more than twenty pieces of outdoor art? Maybe on your hurried walk to a UM event or a MOLLI class you passed something that caught your eye but you couldn’t take time to stop? Join us for three easy walks to explore some of the wonderful public art exhibited across campus. You will learn more about these original art pieces, many created by leading Montana artists.
Bring your coffee, tea or smoothie and join with others to share our enthusiasm for art that is right in front of you each time you are on the University of Montana campus! Wear comfortable walking shoes and sunscreen, maybe even a hat, as most of the art you will visit is outdoors.
September 13: We will meet at the north end of campus at the corner of Campus Drive and Adams Center, next to Charging Forward by Jay Laber, step inside the Adams Center to view work by well known local artists, and slowly work our way down Memorial Row toward Main Hall.
September 20: We will start at Teepee Burner by John Vichorek, wewill go into the UC for Jay Rummel's Five Valleys Trilogy. We will then go on an art hunt toward the Forestry Building and the southeast section of campus.
September 27: We will begin at the Urey Lecture Hall patio to see David Pledge's Three Vessels, we will then make art stops as we walk toward Miller Hall and Rudy Autio's Signal, and we will end at the Oval to meet up with the iconic Grizz, also by Autio.
About the Presenters: Anita Kurtz-Magee, a retired teacher of 32 years, moved to Missoula in 2000 and brought her love for art with her. A native of New Jersey, a spur of the moment evening course in art appreciation began her lifelong interest and motivation to learn more. She scoured the halls of the major museums in New York City many times, but it was after her five year stint as a museum docent in Missoula that she knew she wanted to share her joy in art.
A member since MOLLI first began, Dani Sacks has taken courses covering a wide variety of subjects. Even years after college, Dani continued taking courses that captured her interests at the moment. Prior to moving to Montana, she was in firm administration and human resources. Dani discovered an attraction to art when she became part of an art docent program.
