Since the time of one of our most famous residents, Charlie Russell, calling this community home to today, Great Falls has been an artsy town. Commonly referred to as Montana’s Basecamp for Art and Adventure, Great Falls has a rich history in the arts. The arts continue to thrive here, evident by all the museums and environmental art you will find in Montana’s greatest dam town. ArtsFestMontana is an annual event that occurs every August in the streets of Great Falls. Plan now to be here Sunday, August 8th through Friday, August 13th, 2021. New art will be popping up throughout Downtown Great Falls as we welcome mural artists to line our streets with their masterpieces.
ArtsFest 2021 will spotlight the work of two local Great Falls artists and two other Montana-based artists. But we aren’t stopping there! We have also invited four talented artists from outside the state to round out our roster of amazing talent. These artists will create seven, if not more, new murals to line the streets of Great Falls. Check out the map below to guide a self-lead downtown art walk to see all the locations of murals created over the last few years. You can also get sneak peak at the locations of the masterpieces that will be created during ArtsFest 2021.
