CONFERENCE HALL The Zootown Arts Community Center, Missoula
The Zootown Arts Community Center is Missoula’s non-profit local arts center and supports local artists, performing artists, and musicians by being as transparent and open in our practices as possible, and by instituting a business model by which all members of the Missoula Arts Community can comfortably create, collaborate, and thrive.
The ZACC Show Room is located in the heart of downtown Missoula in the beautiful, historic Studebaker Building, and can house a maximum of 175 seated and 350 standing. Adjacent to the Show Room is the Blackfoot Gallery & Lounge.
The name of the event center harkens back to the building’s original use as an automobile garage and showroom. The Studebaker Building is listed on the National Historic Registry, and served a growing automobile industry from the 1920s through the 1950s, when its owner Louis Nybo sold and repaired Studebakers here — the then vehicle of choice for Missoula’s police force.
