Come join Environment Montana for First Friday!  This art show highlights the clean, beautiful rivers, lakes and streams that our state has to offer.  Open house, all ages welcome! We will have live music, snacks and beverages! Stop by and see some beautiful local art and learn about what the EPA has done for us. 

Born in 1970, the Environmental Protection Agency has lived to serve, protect, and clean up land and water all over the country. In Montana, some of our most beloved rivers and lakes have been cleaned up by the EPA.  Today, our pristine aquatic ecosystems, healthy fish and wildlife, and unbeatable water recreation opportunities are a product of this agency’s policies and funding.  Unfortunately, the EPA is under attack, and is facing critical budget shortfalls.  

To celebrate 47 years of the EPA, Environment Montana is hosting an educational art show in Missoula, on Friday, December 1st, during Missoula’s monthly art walk.  Our goal is to use a mix of photography and paintings from local artists that depict stunning aquatic scenery of Montana, contrasted with photographs of dams, mines, and various pollutants that inflicted damage on our watersheds.  We aim to celebrate the work of the EPA through public education, while bolstering the work of local artists.
