Laura Wilson || Arts and Exhibits

Hey Bobcats, my name is Laura Wilson, I am from Billings, MT and studying Liberal Arts Studio and let me tell you, I am absolutely thrilled to be the director of Arts and Exhibits! Montana State has a thriving community dedicated to the betterment of the student body and our campus! What's better for the soul then a well put-together art exhibit? Probably nothing. Please feel free to stop by the gallery anytime, take in the amazing work that our students and community have contributed, and be sure to say hello to me while I'm in my office. I'd love the opportunity to sit down with you to talk art, community, and why the Bobcats are the best! My advice to you would be to take advantage of the amazing community around you! Bozeman is over-flowing with opportunities-Hike the M, ski Bridger Bowl, check out the Exit Gallery (obviously!), stroll downtown and cheer on the Bobcats at a football game! Get out there and be active in our community, because there is no better way to have a great experience at Montana State.
