ART EXHIBITS

A collaboration with the local Missoula art museum, Art Museum of Missoula, brought "Breath Taken: The Landscape and Biography of Asbestos" by Bill Ravenesi to Montana. Mr. Ravenesi, a photojournalist, has documented the places and victims of asbestos poisoning. The art museum sponsored the exhibition for approximately two months. The museum curators approached St. Patrick Hospital of Missoula to underwrite some of the expenses associated with the exhibit; the hospital generously responded by offering support. The Libby Historical Society was also involved and provided some historical photos to add to the exhibit. The Center for Asbestos Related Diseases (CARD) Clinic in Libby sponsored a dsiplay so that Libby residents could view part of the exhibit. Funds from Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) were used to pay for busing costs so that school children from Libby could see the exhibit and tour the scientific research labs on The University of Montana campus.
