MMAC celebrates Glacier National Park's strong aesthetic legacy as seen through traditions of the Amskapi Pikuni (Blackfeet), and the artist patronage of the Great Northern Railway. The exhibition features a rare war record that originally adorned Many Glacier Hotel; tipi designs by Jessie Wilber; works by Elizabeth Lochrie and Branson Stevenson; photographs by Tomer J. Hileman, Edward S. Curtis, Roland Reed, Arthur Dailey, Fred Kiser; and paintings by John Fery, Julius Seyler, O.C. Seltzer, Carl Link and Winold Reiss.

The Western Cast Iron Art Conference Exhibition ended at the Montana Museum of Art & Culture this past Saturday, May 29. MMAC was delighted to be a part of the wider effort to celebrate and display this unique art form. 

We had a wonderful turnout at our opening reception. More than 200 conference attendees and others dropped in to see the works of keynote artists Elizabeth Kronfield and Matthew Wicker and enjoy the music of local artist, Dan Dubuque.

Many thanks to our partners, especially Professor Brad Allen and Chair Julia Galloway of the UM Department of Art. Thanks to the other venues including Missoula Art Museum and Studio/Gallery.
