The Art of the State

120 Artworks for 120 Years
Selections from the Montana Museum of Art and Culture Permanent Collection at the University of Montana

In celebration of the Montana Museum of Art & Culture’s 120th year, this volume’s selections represent the scope and breadth of the museum’s Permanent Collection from ancient works to more contemporary pieces.  From Pablo Picasso to Fra Dana and Walter Hook to Andy Warhol, each piece of art is beautifully photographed and presented with a short history that tells the Permanent Collection’s chronology of development. . Former MMAC Curator of Art Brandon Reintjes and former archivist at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Cheryl Leibold document MMAC’s mission to acquire and preserve art that expresses the spirit of the American West and its relationship to the world, making highlights of the State of Montana’s art collection accessible for all. The handbook is available in both soft and hardbound formats.
