Embracing the belief that art vitalizes and strengthens community, the Holter Museum of Art seeks to stimulate creativity, curiosity, and collaboration through the visual arts. Our mission is not just to exhibit art, but to interpret it, teach it, create it, preserve it, and build community through it. We capture the imagination of both the young and grown through exciting exhibitions and influential art education. We fuel our community’s curiosity and vision by exploring diverse perspectives and cultures within Montana and beyond.
We honor the uniqueness of our community and the state of Montana by celebrating contemporary regional artists in our collection, which aims to preserve for future generations the record of our own time and place in history. Community is at the core of the Holter mission, and we strive to share the richness of the visual arts as a benefit for all.
