Through a competitive open call process, a law school selection committee of the Montana Arts Council selected the original textured oil painting Awakened Council by Tracy Lynn Pristas for installation through the Percent-for Art Program of the State of Montana for the Alexander Blewett III School Of Law Building
It was the intention of the committee that the chosen artwork enhance the experience of the students, facility, staff, alumni and the general public. The work selected had to exemplify creative expression and excellence. The Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana prepares students for the people-oriented practice of law by integrating theory and practice in a competency-based curriculum; serves as the academic legal center in Montana; and contributes to the development of national, state, and tribal law and legal institutions through teaching, scholarship, and service.
There was an truly close working relationship with the director of the Montana Arts Council, the law school committee and the artist Tracy Lynn Pristas. The artist was responsible for the framing of the artwork in accordance with the predominate color palette and design style of the interior. As well as handling the shipping of the artwork.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
