Do you need to treat yourself to a weekend getaway? Even if you don’t think so, I bet your partner does! If you don’t have any plans for the first weekend in March, why not come and visit Missoula? Stay in our charming bed and breakfast and enjoy the arts and culture on display during the First Friday in Missoula event, organized by the Arts Council here in town. March 1 is the First Friday for next month and here are some of the things we think look especially interesting:
Installation Artwork at Missoula Art Museum: Visit MAM for First Fridays from 5-8 pm. MAM is no stranger to installations, and neither is exhibiting artist Gary Horinek. Horinek is a farmer who’s work creates a bridge between agriculture and art via his creative installations. A deep-seated appreciation of the land and sustenance that the land provides is at the core of Horinek’s creative expressions.
Join Horinek on a walk-through his exhibit at 7 p.m. to hear his stories. Always free. 335 N. Pattee St.
Monte Dolack Gallery: For First Friday, the Gallery will exhibit works from the Moonlight Rainbows series of paintings and lithographs. Music will be provided by Keith Hardin, refreshments will be served and everyone is welcome. 139 W Front St.
Book Reading & Signing: Author Keith McCafferty will be reading excerpts from his book, The Grey Ghost Murders. Signing to follow, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Fact and Fiction bookstore at 220 N Higgins St. downtown.
Plan a Spring Getaway to Missoula
Even if you can’t join us for the First Friday in March, spring is a wonderful time to visit our area of Montana. Missoula is alive with activity, including such events as The International Food and Wildlife Film Festivals. Amid green valleys and mountain peaks capped with white, the birds begin nesting and wild flowers blanket the hills with color. Here at our Missoula bed and breakfast, we have excellent views of all of it! Located just outside of town, you can re-trace the footsteps of Lewis and Clark, Native People or other historical figures within the Rocky Mountain West, right from your window. Remember to dress in layers. Spring weather in Montana can be varied!
