The Missoula community is blessed to have a large number of people who value and support the arts. Each month Arts Missoula will recognize a new Arts Missoula STAR for his or her important contribution to the Missoula arts landscape.  Some of our STARS are artists, some are musicians.  Some are business people who generously give of their time and resources.  Some are behind the scenes and would not be known by the general public for their contribution.  Some are educators who are making sure that the arts are a valued part of our children’s education. All have a place in our Galaxy of Valued Arts Supporters.
