Inspired Views ’20

Each year, Montserrat College of Art invites art educators nationwide to submit work for our annual summer exhibition, Inspired Views. Recognizing the many working artists who inspire and mentor our young people, Inspired Views beings art educators together and gives them and opportunity to exhibit their own work in the Montserrat Galleries. This year, due to COVID-19, we will be offering an online gallery experience along with a special Juror with a professional development opportunity for participants.
