A Whitefish art studio is reaching out to their community for help with a large scale art project.
Non-profit Stumptown Art Studio is spearheading "Windows on Whitefish," a piece featuring the four seasons the community sees every year. The six by nine foot spring, summer, fall, and winter windows will be installed on the side of Latitude 48's building, replacing a mural that was beginning to wear down. Stumptown employees told us they're currently fundraising and offering classes for anyone interested in participating.
Executive Director Melanie Drown said the studio works hard to execute their larger projects. "It's intimidating because it's the biggest project we've ever undertaken," she explained, "but it's just so fun to see the look on people's faces when they come and take a class. It's just a win-win. It's going to help the community, it's going to beautify downtown, it's going to pull people together."
Stumptown employees hope to install the spring mosaic by July and complete the entire project within the next two years.
