Join the SLAM family...
SLAM is an organization for the community, by the community. Your efforts and donations allow SLAM to provide art programming, scholarships, community installations, and partnerships that promote and sustain creative endeavors throughout the state. Check out ways that you can help SLAM in its many projects through volunteering, sponsorships, and donations. We always welcome friends of the arts to join in the fun and invest in the dynamic creative communities across Montana.
The SLAM Scholarship fund is available to residents of the state of Montana interested in pursuing artistic endeavors. This encompasses a wide range of opportunities, including, but not limited to: camps, lessons, workshops, higher education, residencies, and community art projects.
SLAM began in 2011 with a small festival in Bogert Park in Bozeman, MT with the primary intent of sharing Montana artists with the Montana public. Now, we host two annual art festivals and a brewery tour, promoting artists of all techniques and materials, local breweries and distilleries, musicians, writers, culinary artists-- anything and everything that is an Montana made by hand with a original twist. Check out our events and make sure to post these dates to your calendar!
SLAM recognizes the value of art that is accessible to all members of our community, regardless of age or socio-economic status. We feel that living with art in our everyday lives cultivates an appreciation for the arts, and inspires art advocacy, while promoting abstract thinking, ingenuity, and creative problem solving. In an effort to increase access to public art, SLAM spearheads projects that manifest in art installations in public spaces.
Featured Artist in the SLAM Gallery
For the month of June, we are pleased to present the work of the Bozeman High School Advanced Placement Art Class. Works of collage, printmaking, painting, drawing and jewelry are on display, representing some of the best work created by local high school students. Please come out and support these fledgling artists at the next Art Walk on June 14th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm.
We have a track record you can get behind
SLAM is proud to be an organization sustained by the effort and energy of the community for the community. Through volunteers, sponsorships, and community partners, SLAM supports artistans that keep Montana a vibrant haven for creatives and citizens alike.
