YGM launches virtual art exhibit highlighting wonders of Yellowstone
Yellowstone Gateway Museum has announced its first online exhibit, “Exploring Yellowstone Through Art,” featuring artwork by twenty-six local artists and the inspirational stories behind their work. On display on the top floor of the museum, the public may now view the exhibit through the YGM website.
Subjects are as varied as the park itself, including landscapes, geothermal features, wildlife and more. Artists chose varied mediums, including oil, oil encaustic, acrylic, watercolor, oil pastel, colored pencil and stained glass. A brief story about the artist’s inspiration behind each piece is included. Please contact the artist directly regarding their featured piece, which may be available for sale along with additional works. Some sales benefit the museum!
The museum plans to post more historical content online as time allows, including stories from “Pull Up a Chair: Tales from the Seats of History,” honoring Park County veterans, the new Farming & Ranching exhibit, the upcoming Ice Age Mammal exhibit, and more. The museum’s goal is to make Park County history more accessible to everyone. Other new online offerings include “Glimmers of History,” a weekly post on Facebook and Instagram, featuring photographs from museum collections and a brief history. A monthly e-newsletter is now also available.
