The creative idea behind this special exhibition is to highlight the diversity of artistic styles and mediums while using the human form, aka mannequins. 42 artists have donated their time and talent to transform mannequin bodies or parts, using a variety of mediums, into unique works of art. These works will be displayed around the Flathead Valley at 28 locations, June 22 thru mid-August. The exhibition culminates in a lovely event at The Nest on Swan River on August 15, along with a chance to bid on your favorite piece!
The Art of Us will benefit the Bigfork Art & Cultural Center as well as ImagineIf Library in Bigfork, and the Sparrow’s Nest of Northwest Montana.
