The C.M. Russell Museum, recognized among the finest Western Art Museums in the country, is home to one of the world’s largest collections of artworks by Charles Marion Russell (1864-1926). Known as “America’s Cowboy Artist,” he is considered to be one of the most important artists of his time.
The Hockaday Museum of Art opened its doors in 1969 as the first art center in the Flathead Valley. Its mission is to enrich the cultural life of our community and region, and preserve the artistic legacy of Montana and Glacier National Park.
The Lewistown Art Center was established to bring art education and appreciation to our Central Montana communities. Located in the heart of Lewistown’s historic downtown district, this is the only art gallery and learning space of its kind for 100+ miles in any direction! We offer a full spectrum of youth and adult education programs in our Hands On Art classroom and clay studio, and regularly host community events celebrating regional arts and culture. The “Margie Wilkins Gallery” offers rotating exhibits of work by some Montana’s most renowned artists. The public is invited to join us for monthly Artist Receptions. Come meet the artists in person while enjoying complimentary refreshments, and browse the LAC Gift Shop, featuring handmade work by over 150 regional artists and craftspeople.
