Arts & Entertainment
Monticello's growing arts and entertainment options provide a variety of experiences for all ages!
Monticello Arts Initiative
Connectivity through creativity; is the core value behind the Monticello Arts Initiative.
Our primary focus is to help make the downtown area a vibrant, invigorating space where people enjoy spending time and being active.
Connecting local creatives to one another is step one. By harnessing that group's energy, creative thinking, and ideas, we'll plan events, create programming, and weave public and community arts into the downtown landscape.
Monti Arts' New Home
In 2019 Monti Arts moved into the former Fred's Auto building at 349 West Broadway. The location allows more opportunities for the public to get involved in art projects around Monticello. From creating public art to specialty classes to events, there's something for artists and non-artists of all ages. More information about upcoming events and programming is available on the Monticello Community Center website.
Downtown Shimmer Wall
The first installation by the Monti Arts Initiative was an ambitious idea to select a photograph to display in a truly unique way in a very visible place downtown.
A committee selected a photo by local photographer Chris Lommel to be constructed of thousands of reflective discs that flutter in the breeze giving the image movement and a shimmering quality.
