Tuesdays through Saturdays, 12 noon-6 PM
Closed Monday, Sunday, and for all university holidays
The exhibition, “The Speyer Collection of Contemporary Art,” opens on
October 15 and runs until January 8, 2022 in the MMAC’s Meloy Gallery in the PARTV Center.
Helena-based collector Tim Speyer will share a selection of works of art from his collection focused on human interactions with birds. According to MMAC director Chacón, “Speyer’s collection reveals a penchant for the surreal, enigmatic, and poetic among contemporary artists from around the world. Much of the work is figurative and focused on the complex ways humans share this planet with our fellow creatures.”
Educational programming will include a lecture by collector Lee Silliman on September 28 and a panel discussion with artists Barbara Michelman and Bishop Storrs, authors Marc Beaudin and Charles Finn, and biologists Angela Hornsby and Zac Cheviron on October 21.
Public receptions are scheduled for both opening nights from 5:30-7:30 PM. For information about educational programming or about scheduling tours for groups over 10 people, please contact Kaitlyn Rawhouser at 406-243-4181 or e-mailing email@example.com.
