The Holter Museum inspires, connects, and heals our community through contemporary exhibitions and innovative arts programming.
The museum brings national and international exhibitions into the region, providing a much-needed venue for local and regional artists. The Holter Museum of Art also collects and preserves regional artworks in its permanent collection. The Holter is committed to promoting participation of diverse audiences through outreach, innovative educational programming, and collaboration with other organizations.
The museum opened in 1987 offering a space to experience contemporary art in central Montana. The museum has grown tremendously since its opening date, thanks to a successful capital campaign in 2002. This campaign added 6,500 square feet to create a dynamic 17,000 square foot facility while also increasing our endowment. The facility is considered one of the finest in the state, and consists of five exhibition galleries, an education center, and a collections & research center. Offering over twenty rotating exhibitions each year, art education for all ages, artist residencies, lectures, receptions, and more—the Holter is among the premier cultural centers in the region.
