Missoula Montana continues to feel the ripple effect of Women Beyond Borders. The influence on the community is greater than any other exhibition at the Missoula Art Museum. 

– Cricket Wingfield, WBB Coordinator



Over 1,200 fifth graders from Missoula County came to the museum every school day for three months throughout the exhibition to view the boxes and to discuss women’s issues. As the students entered the museum, both boys and girls were given cards with a specific issue relating to women. They viewed the works and collected information in reference to their card. Earnest discussions followed giving the students new insights into women. Next, the group viewed the WBB World Tour video and then created their own boxes.
