Inspiring Creativity for people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities with contemporary art.
The Holter Museum of Art relies on the generous support of individuals, businesses, and our community to help sustain our community and educational programming, preserve and expand the Holter’s art collection, and bring diverse and world-class exhibitions to our region.
Please note that this recognition is actively being worked on.
The hope is that this verbal/written acknowledgement of indigenous lands goes beyond the intent of recognition and holds the Holter to actively working with Helena’s tribal communities to listen and respond to expressed needs and wants, and to have programming designed with and for native voices and for the greater Helena community.
The Holter Museum of Art recognizes the land in and around Helena, Montana and the space upon which the museum stands as traditional Blackfoot and Salish Kootenai territories, and at one point in time, Shoshone territory as well. This recognition is meant as an acknowledgement of the space the museum holds within colonized lands and the significance, as a cultural and educational space, the museum must place on Indian Education for All and on the representation of Native voices within the contemporary arts world.
