About Us

You may have asked yourself “why isn’t there a fine art museum in Bozeman?” I’ve asked the same question many a time. It is interesting to consider, especially since Bozeman is the only “larger” town in Montana that does not have a fine art museum. We stand alone amidst museums in Billings, Missoula, Helena, Kalispell, Miles City and Great Falls.

We want to change this! The board of directors of the Bozeman Art Museum envisions a welcoming place, exciting and inspiring collections and exhibits, and diverse programs where people of all ages can come together to experience and be inspired by art.

Creating a world class accredited art museum will take some time because we want to do it right and assure sustainability. To that end, our current focus is on thoughtfully building a dynamic and engaged board, developing our operational infrastructure, and meeting community needs through an exemplary educational program, “pop-up” art exhibitions, lectures, and workshops. Each step we take is designed to build our brand and capacity to launch a future campaign for a Bozeman Art Museum.

Every individual in the Gallatin Valley should have access to the transformational power of art. To achieve this, your help is needed in the form of financial support, volunteering, and/or expertise. We are appreciative of the generous support we have received from individuals and foundations and would be honored to have your help as well.

We know that you will be proud to be a part of the Bozeman Art Museum.
