Holter Museum or Art - Helena, Montana

The horizon is ever present in Montana, a datum that encircles “big sky country.” Beneath the big sky imagery is a landscape of tension between rugged beauty and the ravages of extractive industry. The Holter Museum is dedicated to addressing such issues through the communicative power of contemporary art.

The Holter’s building reflects this landscape in its formal and spatial order: adding new space to an existing mining supply store, overlapping and sharing educational, collections, and gallery space, and a formal vocabulary that borrows from the land forms and the historic mineshafts of the gold rush.

Project executed in collaboration with Bjerke Architects.
