Art Ambassador Program


Welcome to the Polson Chamber Art Ambassador Program!

The Polson Chamber Art Ambassador Program provides an opportunity for Polson area photographers, writers, videographers, painters, musicians, and more to engage with the Polson Chamber of Commerce on a volunteer basis to help us promote this incredible place that we call home. Our goal is to build a strong cohort of artists who are willing to allow us to share their credited work, join us for in-person Chamber events, assist us in Chamber publications and more! Art Ambassadors will also maintain a listing on our website, and may offer recommendations for ways in which the Chamber can best present Polson to the world. For more information about what the Art Ambassador Program entails, please review the Program Description section below.

We are proud of the diverse art and culture community we have here in Polson, and are excited for the opportunity to better connect our creative talents with our Chamber Members! Thank you in advance for your willingness to join our mission as we work to serve, support and strengthen our economy and foster a strong sense of community in Polson, MT!
