Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art hosted its annual "Arts On Fire" event on Saturday, September 10, 2022, featuring arts, crafts, and performances designed for all ages.

The festival is a fundraiser for the education and curatorial departments.

The Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art is the only contemporary art museum in north-central Montana and the annual event showcases the museum’s importance in the community.

Director of Education Ellie Weber said, "It has evolved for 11 years in different ways. This year, we've expanded. We're wrapping all the way around the whole square block."

She noted, "We've got food trucks on the north side this year, more art activities, performances booked throughout the day. It's a full fun day. The point of Arts On Fire is to highlight our education department. Our education department is very diverse, we offer quarterly classes for youth and adults, and we also have quite a bit of free programming too, five free art programs that we run in addition to the education department. So this event is a free event we put on for the community to give back and highlight our education department."

The museum is located at 1400 1st Avenue North.
