We are so lucky to live in Missoula, especially with a group like Arts Missoula that serves as a resource to support art and culture within the community. Each month Arts Missoula recognizes a new Arts Missoula STAR for their important contribution to the Missoula arts landscape. Previous Missoula STARS have been talented musicians or artists. All have a place in the Arts Missoula, Galaxy of Valued Arts Supports.

For the month of May, Arts Missoula's STAR is Patricia Thornton, Print-shop Manager and Adult Education director at the Zootown Arts Community Center. Patricia is a talented artist, art instructor, works with children and adults, and is hands on with all things happening at the ZACC.

Executive Director of Arts Missoula Tom Benson will present the Arts Missoula START award to Patricia at the Top Hat during Family Friendly Friday, featuring ZACC Band Camp participants on May 11th.
