Current Art Exhibit :  Reimagine Montana

September 12 to October 31 the Atrium Gallery is proud to display the Montana Preservation Alliance's special exhibit, Reimagine Montana. Please join us Friday, September 15 at 6pm, for the opening reception. The Library will close at 5pm to allow us to get ready for this event.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In 2016, the Montana Preservation Alliance (MPA) offered six artists the chance to participate in Reimagine Montana, an Artist-in-Residence program funded through a nationwide Imagine Your Parks Initiative. Timed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the National Endowment for the Arts and the centennial of the National Park Service, Reimagine Montana also marks 30 years of preservation work by the MPA.

Reimagine Montana celebrates nationally significant parks and outstanding heritage properties in Montana by reinterpreting five historic places depicted by iconic artists such as Karl Bodmer, Thomas Hart Benton, Gustav Sohon, Charlie Russell and Native American traditional artists whose hide paintings, ledger drawings and rock art survive to the current day.

The Reimagine Montana artists whose work will be on display are Ben Bloch, David Burke, Tim Holmes, Kit Frost, DG House and Lewis Williams.

A percentage of art sales will go to the Library Foundation to ensure continuation of cultural programs at the Library. For more information, please call 582-2425 or email sarah@bozemanlibraryfoundation.org.

Art Exhibitions

The Atrium Gallery located in the Library lobby will showcase both traditional and innovative contemporary art forms, as well as the work of both established and emerging artists of our region.

The Library’s primary objective is to feature exhibitions that will expand public appreciation of art and reflect the diversity of the community. Selections will be made by the Library Art Committee, which is made up of local artists, community members, Library Foundation, and Library staff. Each exhibit will run for one to three months, determined by the committee.

The Bozeman Public Library is committed to promoting the visual and aesthetic enhancement of the Bozeman community through this ongoing presentation of rotating exhibits of public art in the Library. For complete description of the program and guidelines, visit Exhibit Proposal Guidelines below. For additional information, please contact Sarah DeOpsomer at 406/582-2425 or sarah@bozemanlibraryfoundation.org.
