Blackfoot Pathways: Sculpture in the Wild International Sculpture Park invites international, national and regional artists to the Blackfoot Valley to create significant site-specific works of art that respond to the rich cultural, environmental and industrial heritage of the Valley using contemporary art practice.

The artist-in-residency program provides an opportunity for artists and the community to actively engage in discussion through hands-on community participation, a elementary and secondary school education program, artist’s presentations and on-site visits throughout the residency. Engagement and conversation between the artists and the community creates a sense of understanding, pride and ownership of the artwork.

Goals:

The project provides a building block for the development of a strong long-term arts program that will encourage artistic excellence and community participation thus improving the quality of life in rural Montana. The project goals are to:

  • Create an international sculpture park that invites international and national artists to respond to this unique landscape through our artist-in-residency program.
  • Create strong partnerships with educational, community and environmental organisations.
  • Encourage creative expression through hands-on participation and education within the public schools and the community.
  • Provide the framework for the development of a vibrant artist community thus promoting the Blackfoot Valley as an “art destination”.
  • Encourage cultural, social and economic vibrancy in the Blackfoot Valley

Our 2019 artist-in-residence program includes world renowned environmental artist Stuart Frost (Norway) and Alison Stigora (USA). Please visit www.sculptureinthewild.com for additional updates.
