The Holter Museum of Art fuels artistic creativity and imagination in Montana through exceptional contemporary art exhibitions, collections, and educational programming.
Embracing the belief that art vitalizes and strengthens community, the Holter Museum of Art seeks to stimulate creativity, curiosity, and collaboration through the visual arts. Our mission is not just exhibiting art—we interpret it, teach it, help create it, preserve it, and build community through it. We capture the imagination of both the young and the grown through exciting exhibitions and powerful art education. We fuel our community's curiosity and vision by exploring diverse perspectives and cultures—including contemporary Indian culture—within Montana, beyond the state, and from abroad. We honor the uniqueness of our community, of Helena and of Montana, by celebrating contemporary regional artists in our collection and, through our collection, we seek to preserve for future generations the record of our own time and place in history. Community is at the core of the Holter mission, and we strive to share the richness of the visual arts as a benefit for all.
