Arts Missoula (formerly Missoula Cultural Council) was formed in February, 1991 as the result of a two year public planning process. A written report, The Fabric of Missoula, provided the basis for the formation of Arts Missoula as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. It is a local arts agency the first in Montana as defined by the National Endowment for the Arts. Arts Missoula serves as a resource for the coordination, development and support of art and culture for the benefit of the Missoula community.
