Every year millions of visitors come to Yellowstone National Park. The first National Park in the world. Expansive and mind-blowing; but to those of us here, in the greater Park County community, what does this place mean to us?

As artists, how do we interpret something that is so expansive and how it relates to our artistic world view.

Lyndon B. Johnson wrote : “If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them something more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it.”

Over 30 local Montana artists from a variety of backgrounds and displaying various media are celebrating what the National Park Service strove to do at it’s inception 100 years ago; inspire, preserve and protect lands for the enjoyment of future generations. We look forward to the community of Livingston embracing the art displayed during this four week long exhibit as a celebration of the natural beauty that surrounds us everyday. SEE U at the CENTER!
