Hello to Old Missoula: Missoula's History through Art
Friday, May 17th from 5:30 to 9:00pm

Did you know there was a Poor Farm in the Rattlesnake from 1880s - 1930s? Ever wonder what it might have been like to live here during the Glacial Lake Missoula era? Or to drive the Strip during the 70s? How about the work involved with making the Big Ditch in 1905?
Join us for this one-of-a-kind fundraiser for your Historical Museum and help choose the next Ten Spoon wine label!
17 local artists have chosen a decade from the mid-1800s onward (with a couple special eras thrown in for fun). Each piece will portray what Missoula and Western Montana was like during that part of our history! Artists will be on site to chat about their work and the research behind them.
Art will be debuted at the event and in the silent auction and YOU can vote for your favorite piece. The winner will be turned into a Ten Spoon wine label with proceeds supporting your Historical Museum!  And don't forget, YOU can take a piece of history home with you.

Additional offerings include:

  *   Silent Auction of these historical art pieces
  *   Live band, Malarkey!
  *   Interesting history of the Rattlesnake
  *   Food Truck and Wine
  *   Walking Through the Decades exhibit
  *   Raffle and Wine Pull
  *   Gorgeous views of the Missoula Valley as the backdrop

Tickets can be purchased before the event at The Historical Museum at Fort Missoula or Ten Spoon Winery.
Cash or Check at the door for admittance.
Admission is $8/person $15/couple.
HMFM members and kids 12 and under are free!

Sláinte (To Health!),
