The Yellowstone Art Center

Highlights & Collections

After 32 years, success has caused the Yellowstone Art Center to outgrow its facility, the old Yellowstone County jail in Billings, Montana. It must enlarge those quarters to maintain and expand its educational programs and exhibitions. The renovation will more than double exhibition space, add an education room, expanded research library, and audio/visual room. Over $5.8 million has been raised towards the $6.1 million Capital Campaign goal. The Yellowstone Art Center will be closed for construction until fall 1997.

A satellite location housing the museum shop is located at 2720 3rd Avenue North. Hours are Monday - Friday,11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. During construction, the Yellowstone Art Center will continue to host the Annual Art Auction and Summerfair.

The Yellowstone Art Center's Annual Art Auction is the premier event of its kind in the region. Featuring works by nearly one hundred artists, the auction reflects the diversity and vibrancy of today's art. The 29th Annual Art Auction is March 1,1997 at the Billings Sheraton Hotel.
