Jaune Quick-to-See Smith: In the Footsteps of My Ancestors

March 23, 2017 - July 16, 2017
Jaune Quick-to-See Smith calls herself a cultural arts worker. She uses humor and satire to examine myths, stereotypes and the paradox of American Indian life in contrast to the consumerism of American society. Her work is philosophically centered by her strong traditional beliefs and political activism.

Art in Action: Marking Time

March 23, 2017 - August 6, 2017
Back by popular demand, Art in Action puts YOU the viewer in charge of curating! This exciting community-based installation allows the viewer to leave their mark, literally on the walls of the YAM.

Archaea: Rosane Volchan O’Conor

March 23, 2017 - August 6, 2017
O’Conor’s installation draws from the biomorphic forms of microscopic organisms that were first studied in Yellowstone National Park as well as the intense coloration. She plans an immersive installation with forms crawling off the walls, hanging crystalized in space and mutating into clusters across the floor.

Boundless Visions

Boundless Visions features changing selections from the YAM's permanent collections, which emphasize art from the mid-twentieth century to the present. This long-term exhibition is the only exhibition in Montana where you can learn the story of art in this region from its beginnings to the present day.


Art-o-mat machines are retired cigarette vending machines that have been converted to sell art. And just what exactly do you get from an Art-o-mat? The experience of pulling the knob alone is quite a thrill, but you also walk away with an original work of art. What an easy way to become an art collector!
