I Remember Project: Commissioned artwork by Elizabeth Stone

The final artwork will be installed at the museum in October 2024.

In celebration of the museum’s 60th anniversary, the YAM is pleased to work with Montana artist Elizabeth Stone on a commissioned artwork that honors the region’s public and personal histories.

Elizabeth Stone describes her artistic practice as an “[exploration of] potent themes of memory, time, and materials deeply rooted within the ambiguity of the photographic medium.”

With an emphasis on collaboration and community engagement, Stone welcomes participants of all ages and backgrounds to contribute photographic slides and negatives that will become her final work. Donations can be made at the YAM, or at one of several drop-off locations around Billings. See list below.

Community members are also invited to attend an organized “sewing bee” to assist in the production of the piece. The YAM, along with other partner organizations, will host public sewing sessions with the artist throughout Summer 2024. The final artwork will be installed at the museum in October 2024.
