This exhibition includes works of art by Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Donatello, Peter Voulkos, Rudy and Lela Autio, Ben Steele, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Barbara Morgan, Nancy Erickson, and many others.

Social Justice Directive


MMAC Collections Committee's Direction on Social Justice
Adopted 9/11/2020

The Montana Museum of Art and Culture, the state’s largest publicly-owned collection of art, aspires to be an inclusive organization that supports, collects, and represents creative expression that rises from the breadth of the human experience. 

Our efforts are strengthened by welcoming people of every race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, class, disability, age, national origin, and citizenship. 

The MMAC Collections Committee pledges to prioritize the acquisition of work by Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC), LGBTQ+, women, and other historically marginalized artists. 

We further commit to seeking broadly diverse leadership, input, and participation in all aspects of the MMAC Collections Committee's work.
