The Montana Triennial was first organized and presented as a juried exhibition by the Missoula Art Museum in 2009 with subsequent exhibitions in 2012 and 2015. These exhibitions demonstrate the diverse and excellent array of artistic practice in Montana. The Yellowstone Art Museum, at the invitation of the Missoula Art Museum, will organize and present the fourth Triennial at the YAM, involving Nicole Herden, Curator of Art at the Boise Art Museum, as an independent juror. After receiving over 150 applications, 40 artists representing the vast scope of Montana visual arts were selected. The range of visual expression will run the gamut from traditional oil paintings to purely conceptually-based artworks, and will showcase the differing but beautiful perspectives of Montana artists today.
