Jill Brody: Hidden in Plain Sight

On view through December 30, 2016
Charles M. Bair Family Gallery and Northwest Projects Gallery
If anything is commonly known about Hutterite colonies, it is their reputation for being self-contained and private. So much more is the privilege, then, to be able to view this selection of photographs by Jill Brody, a photographer who earned the trust and support of the Hutterite colonies in Liberty County, Montana.
SPONSORS: Anonymous, Dr. Stephen and Marilyn Kramer CONTRIBUTING SPONSOR: Dave and Cynthia Hummel, and the Stapleton Gallery

Unleashed: Critters from the Permanent Collection

On view through December 30, 2016
Montana Gallery
The exhibition is lively and has had popular appeal, flowing from the attraction to animals as seen in innumerable social media memes and animal-themed exhibitions slated around the country in recent years. Many of the art works selected for Unleashed have rarely, if ever, been exhibited, and never in this context. Take part in a joint scavenger hunt for critters at the YAM and ZooMontana for ages 18 and under.
CONTRIBUTING SPONSORS: Deborah Anspach and John Hanson, Gareld and Barbara Krieg
ADDITIONAL SPONSORS: Members of the Yellowstone Art Museum Board of Trustees
